New Year, New Challenge!

16 January 2014

Cal Chal Start News Lge

2014 is shaping up to be a milestone year in Scotland; the Commonwealth Games, the 40th Ryder Cup and a whole host of events to celebrate the Year of Homecoming. So why not beat those January blues and sign up today to do something spectacular in 2014!

The Caledonian Challenge (14/15 June) and the Caledonian Hike (14 June) are two of the UKs top outdoor fundraising events which see participants from all over the UK and beyond trek through Scotland’s wild outdoors to raise money for Foundation Scotland. 

A mental, physical and emotional test unlike any other, the Caledonian Challenge was recently included in a list of the UK’s top ten toughest mass participation events. It involves teams of four or more walking 54 miles in less than 24 hours along the West Highland Way, one of Scotland’s most iconic and spectacular walks. 

The Caledonian Hike, a brilliant alternative, sees walkers take on a slightly less gruelling 24 miles in under 12 hours. Fewer agonies perhaps, but the rewards are just as plentiful! 

Since its inception in 1996, 16,000 participants have raised nearly £13M for Foundation Scotland. 

Events Manager Fraser Lennox said, “2014 is set to be a fantastic year for Scotland, with a range of celebrations taking place to showcase all that’s great about the country. Signing up for the Caledonian Challenge or the Caledonian Hike is a brilliant way to start the New Year by doing something challenging and rewarding for good causes!”

Baillie Gifford Investment Managers is the title sponsor of both the Caledonian Challenge and the Caledonian Hike. They have long supported the work of Foundation Scotland and are proud to be continuing as the lead sponsor.
