the challenge

Congratulations to everyone who has completed the challenge so far and particularly the following people who hold the record for their category. We had some incredible times posted in the summer, most notably by Robert Baldwin, Dougie Wainwright & Tricia Palmer-Lewis who all completed the challenge in sub 40 minutes. The current overall record holder though is former Scotland rugby Captain Rob Wainwright who completed the course in an incredible 28 minutes and 38 seconds!! We suspect  these records may be standing for some time!!
