Hi Flyers

Please read the following and contribute sponsorship to raise money for mountain rescue..
Can you contact Bernadette at Ops for any contribution to such a worthwhile cause...

P.s Good Luck Bernadette !!!!

My Dualathon challenge is below…

In a variation to the common Duatahlon, the Glen Clova Xtreme Duathlon is a 27km bike ride; a 14km mountain run/walk, taking in two Munro's; then a 6km bike ride to the START/FINISH Line at The Glen Clova Hotel, all in under 8 hours!

The Location

Glen Clova is the best known and most popular of the five Angus Glens.
With constantly changing landscapes and magnificent scenery, there could be no better place to enjoy the tranquility and beauty that Glen Clova is so famous for.
Arguably the loveliest of the Glens, Clova is a botanist's paradise with its blanket of rare alpine flowers, where every season offers its own programme of sights and sounds.
At the head of the valley is the rugged and remote Glen Doll, a popular and challenging spot for outdoor enthusiast's. The end of the Glen is dominated by the Cairngorms with footpaths leading to Braemar via Jock's Road, Ballater and the Capel Mounth, and to Glen Prosen via the Kilbo Path.
Glen Doll and Glen Clova is the ideal venue for the Xtreme Duathlon - challenging, yet charming; demanding, yet beautiful.
