283 Munros in 100 days – at 66

Now here is a man that deserves respect: Gerry McPartlin, a 66-year-old retired GP who is attempting to conquer Scotland’s 283 Munros in a continous 100-day journey. Starting at Ben Lomond on April 10 and compleating on Ben Chonzie, he will cover 1,000 miles and climb some 400,000ft.

It is a test of endurance that would examine the fittest of people, let alone a pensioner who will only allow himself six days off during his challenge. If he succeeds, in his own words, it will be ‘the fastest Munro round by a pensioner’.

Not only that, McPartlin, who will keep a blog about his trip here, will be attempting to raise £50,000 for the charity L’Arche. Inspiring stuff!
