I'm walking the Illuminator, a 15 mile trail event using a head torch, on 28th October to raise funds for Braemar Mountain Rescue.

I love being out in the hills and have climbed over 100 munros. I walk for the physical and emotional benefits, enjoying the sense of wellbeing that the outdoors offers. That, and the spectacular views that you just don't get from the roadside. 

With this freedom and enjoyment comes an element of risk, and we are so very fortunate to have amazing volunteers working selflessly for Mountain Rescue. These individuals give up their own time regularly, leaving loved ones or work at all hours, in order to provide support for others, often in the worst weather that nature throws our way.

To date I have been fortunate enough to return from the hills safely, but I'd love to 'give something back' in thanks for the wonderful job that the MRT do. 

Event details

I'm walking the Illuminator 15 Miler in October. The event takes place in the evening and a head torch is required throughout. 

I plan to walk to and from work daily, walk in the hills regularly throughout the summer, and also complete the Great Glen Way in August.
