The Highland Hike Challenge is an extremely arduous endurance hike through the scenic Highlands of Scotland. Participants can choose to walk as individuals or as part of a team either 50km or for those who would like to conquer the 100km challenge - by completing the 100km route in 24 hours
Participants walk through the day and night covering various terrains.
This event is designed to be a tough challenge, testing participants both mentally and physically – participants will need to be fit and determined to conquer the terrain and the mental and physical exertion in order to succeed. We expect all participants to train sufficiently in advance as inadequate training will impact on your enjoyment of the event and your chances of completing it.
We plan the hike with weather conditions and moon phase in mind, but that doesn't mean participants couldn't still be exposed to bad weather at any time, after all this is Scotland! It is vital participants are prepared for all conditions and as a helping hand we will provide you with a kit list along with other information on the website and once you have registered in your welcome pack.
Highland Hike volunteers and support crew are selected for their knowledge, experience, friendliness, sense of humour and ability to safely and effectively deal with any situation that arises; there are also trained in First Aiders/Mental Health First Aider and more on hand so everyone is in safe hands and will be very well looked after.
Volunteers and emergency support teams have mobile phones, Sat Phones and radios, medical kit and other safety apparatus where necessary, as well as vehicle support. Participant and volunteer safety is our highest priority.
The Highland Hike experience will be an unforgettable weekend which participants can share with friends new and old, family or colleagues and all will most certainly make memories to last forever.
All Highland Hike participants will also be raising vital awareness and funds to support our military personnel, veterans and their families.
Psst!! Don't forget your camera!
