The Sunday Post reports that a team of women has conquered all of Scotland’s 282 Munros in just 26 days. They hit the final summit, Ben More on Mull, on Thursday.
The Veteran Women’s Munro Relay – members all aged between 40 and 60 – took just 26 days to complete the continuous, self-propelled journey, which started on Beinn Sgritheall in the north-west Highlands on June 4.
A core of 10 women, with others joining in for shorter spells, have run, walked, cycled and kayaked to all the Munros.
The women journeyed more than 1,750 miles by land and on water and climbed 482,300ft – more than 16 times the height of Mount Everest.
It is believed the feat has never before been completed by an all-female team. The challenge has been raising funds for the charity Free To Run which aims to empower women and girls through sport.
Organiser Fran Loots said: “It has been the most amazing journey.”
