About Challenge 282

My Story

For years I've dreamt of completing the Munro's in a self-propelled (walk, run, cycle and kayak) traverse, across the wildest parts of Scotland.  At the end of nearly four decades in the Army serving all over the world, I'm on a mission to reconnect with Scotland.


Whats a Munro? = 3000ft mountain in Scotland

How many Munro's are there? = 282

How far? = over 2,400Km

When? = Start 3rd Apr 2023

How long? = about 110 days

Day one started on the Isle of Mull with a climb up Ben More, a cycle to the coast and a long sea kayak to the mainland near Oban.  From there the route crosses Scotland, eventually finishing near Cape Wrath in Sutherland sometime in July!  You'll be able to follow my progress following @euanchallenge282 on Instagram and with a live tracker on the home page.


Charities - I'm raising money for St Mungo's whose mission is to 'end homelessness'.  I've been a first responder in London for the last three years and have seen first hand the tragedy of rough sleeping.  People end up on our streets for lots of different reasons, sometimes just having someone to talk to can make all the difference.  The Samaritans are always there for you, they cover the whole of UK, often supporting our veterans and are a great partner charity for St Mungo's.  


Please share your support between these brilliant charities - there is a just giving link on the home page.

Of course, this adventure wouldn't be possible without support from my family, friends and our military family who are always there for you.  Special mention to Jax for holding the fort one more time and Ian who's manning the mobile Challenge 282 HQ and writing the blogs.
