The guys behind Maggie’s Monster Bike and Hike got in touch a couple of weeks back wondering if I would help promote their event.
The Monster Bike + Hike is a 24-hour event where teams of two to six people bike 31 miles and hike 9, 23 or 31 miles to the bronze, silver and gold finishes. Last year from the 850 participants, 680 people made it to the gold finish line and the course record is an impressive 9 hours and 34 minutes.
The fundraiser takes place on 3 – 4 May in Scotland’s Great Glen and raises money for charity Maggie’s, which provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks.
Built in the grounds of NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people need.
For more information, check out their website. You just have time to benefit from a discounted registration fee if you sign up by Monday 31st March.
