Grampian Mountain Challenge
Due to take place November 2020 – postponed until 2021. Dates currently a guesstimate.
Scotland’s Friendly Sociable Winter Mountain Marathon (held every other year)
Close your eyes and imagine a 2-day orienteering and hill running challenge, with hot food, drinks and social marquee provided, plus luggage transfer to and from the overnight camp? Now open your eyes… and enter the Grampian Mountain Challenge.
This event will combine mountain navigation with forest / moorland orienteering over two days. In 2020 it will be in the Lochnagar area with a remote campsite for the Saturday night at an undisclosed location.
We at Ballater Hostel took part in 2018 and enjoyed it so much are taking part again in 2020!
