In partnership with Race Time Result, I provided technical support and monitoring while the event was in progress to assist in making sure that everyone had a safe and enjoyable time.

Unfortunately, due to horrendous weather conditions on the final stage with up to 70 Mile an hour winds, the Event Management Crew had little choice but to cut the final stage on Ben Nevis short for the safety of all.

Even so, the challengers raised an absolutely staggering £175,000 for the charity in this fantastic and challenging event. I and the Race Time Result team would like to offer a huge well done to everyone involved in the event. Amazing!
