The Spencers versus The Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon

We’ve done it!

On Saturday 12th July Bob and Adrian completed The Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon 2014 in a time of 14 hours 2 minutes with a position of 76th out of 138. It was the worst weather in a number of years with 30mph winds and rain pretty much all day but we enjoyed it. Here are a few photos from the day…

THANK YOU to our sponsors

We can’t thank our sponsors enough. We know you’ve been hassled to death but we really appreciate everything you have given us. We have already raised over £3,200 to help those most in need via the chosen charities; Mary’s Meals and Mercy Corps.

What we did

Artemis Great Kindrochit QuadrathlonAn exhilarating test of stamina, strength and fitness through some of the most spectacular and historic areas of the Scottish Highlands.

The course:

  • Swim 1.35k (0.8 miles) to North side of Loch Tay
  • Run / Walk seven Munros encompassing the Lawers and Ptarmigan Ridges to Morenish (approx 24k or 15 miles)
  • Kayak 11k (7 miles) back to Ardtalnaig
  • Cycle around Loch Tay 54k (34 miles)
  • Slice a melon in two with a sword to stop the clock

The two of them had to complete the full course, together, from start to finish.

The charities

Mary's Meals Mary’s Meals

Mary’s Meals is an international movement that sets up school feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. Mary’s Meals is a simple idea that works – by providing a daily meal in a place of education, chronically poor children are attracted to the classroom where they can gain a basic education that provides an escape route from poverty. Over 600,000 children receive Mary’s Meals every school day. The average cost to feed a child for a whole school year is £10.70.

Mercy Corps

Mercy Corps

Mercy Corps is an international development charity that works in 41 countries worldwide helping people to turn the crises of natural disaster, poverty and conflict into opportunities for progress.
