In 3 days I am travelling up to Scotland to begin my round of the 282 Munros. It feels like an epic task just getting to this point and I haven't ran a mile yet! Through my efforts I am hoping to raise money for two charities doing great work to protect wild land and species in the UK; the John Muir Trust and Cumbria Wildlife Trust.
I could try to explain in writing why I think it is important to protect wild places, but thankfully I don't have to as the John Muir Trust have produced an excellent video which does exactly that. Please take 4 minutes to watch, stick it in full screen and turn up the sound, I assure you it will be time well spent.
If you wish to make a donation to support my efforts, clicking on the charity logos on the bar to the right will take you to the Just Giving and Virgin Money Giving pages.
