Sam Hird of Carsaig will be challenging himself to run across all the peaks of Mull over 2000ft in a single day, that’s 35 miles over 12 mountains and equivalent to running over halfway up Mount Everest!  He’s generously offered to do this in aid of our ranger service fundraising campaign.  Look out for details of how to follow his live track on the day, and join us for an evening BBQ at Lochbuie (time tbc) to celebrate his achievement! 

You can sponsor Sam by leaving a donation here, mention in the comments that it’s for Sam’s run: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/savemullandionarangerservice
