Over 7 million steps in 36 hours in the first Caledonian 100

This weekend, Stripe were supporting the inaugural Caledonian 100 which took place in the Cairngorms National Park and saw over 100 Participants take part an epic 100km trek through the night to raise funds for the Scottish Community Foundation and help support some of the UK’s most isolated communities.

Twenty-one teams from across the UK burned almost one million calories, as they crossed some of the most physically challenging landscapes in Scotland with goals of 50, 75, 100 km in 24 to 36 hours.

The event is organised by SCF (Events) Ltd who also run the highly successful Caledonian Challenge, now into its fifteenth year. Thanks to the generosity of a number of private and other landowners including the RSPB and National Trust for Scotland, the route included privileged access to places offering spectacular views of the Cairngorm Mountains, the precious environment of Abernethy Estate, the tranquillity of Loch Builg, majestic views across the Balmoral Estate to Mt Lochnagar and the autumnal beauty of Royal Deeside.
