The Caledonian Challenge

Congratulations to four fearless Carbon trailblazers who have successfully completed the 2012 Caledonian Challenge. Not only did they finish the challenge, putting up with some rather miserable weather, but they managed to place 17th! A great example of teamwork resulted in our Carbon challengers completing the course in 18 hours and 21 minutes – a fantastic achievement. So far, they have raised £3,573 for The Scottish Community Foundation (SCF), a super charity which champions hundreds of local community based projects throughout Scotland.

The reach of the organisation is staggering; the ‘grant map’ on SCF’s website gives some idea of the charity’s coverage – from the Shetland Isles to the Scottish Borders.

The challenge was to walk 54 miles through the Scottish Highlands in under 24 hours. The organisers point out that it is the physical equivalent of completing the London Marathon twice, plus, in terms of the total amount of ups and downs, two ascents of Ben Nevis – all without sleep.

Carbon crew of Stephen Rowntree, Claire Scott, Darren Lees and John Bell joined Sue Bird and Jennifer Smith from Springfords Chartered Accountants to form the ‘Carbonated SpringWalkers’.
