Ythan Multi-terrain Challenge

Thursday 28th May 2009.

This endurance event was completed by our 2nd Coxswain where he took part in this multi-terrain adventure race at Ellon, north of Aberdeen. The course took him along an off-road path beside the river Ythan and into the Esslemont Estate. Once on the estate, the going got tougher underfoot and he encountered a few surprises as the course included a series of obstacles including mudpits, steep embankments, hay bales and the river Ythan itself to name but a few. He managed to raise a fantastic sum of 1600.
