Description

MAD Seat 2017

How many times could you climb Arthur’s Seat in a day?

Yes, that is a serious question. This extinct volcano will be your world for a day. You’ll love it, loath it and never forget it.

You have three options:

· 6 hours = MAD Starter

· 12 hours = MAD Mover

· 24 hours = MAD Master

Start times for all levels will be staggered so that everyone finishes together, at 8pm on the Saturday (aka celebratory beverage o'clock).

What's the record?

Last year, a mighty new MAD Master record was set: 48 ascents within 24 hours! Yup, that's right, 1 ascent on average every 30 minutes. #MADrespect

Other records were also set for:

MAD Mover: 22 ascents in 12 hours

MAD Starter: 12 ascents in 6 hours

… Fancy your chances? Or are you just coming along for the ride?

Hear about what it was like from our champs.

Don’t ask for money. Ask for change.

MAD Challenges uses a different kind of sponsorship: Do Nation – an online platform that allows people to pledge action, not money. (Don't worry, we'll walk you through the simple steps of setting it up.)

The pledges, called 'Do Actions', are cost-free commitments of small but significant changes in habit. They're designed to be good for your environment, your health and your pocket.

Part of the deal in taking part in MAD Seat is that you gather some pledges. Your target is getting 25 people to pledge one or more actions – you can even sponsor yourself!

But why stop at 25?

Two of our participants last year raised so many pledges that they each won Do Nation's Doer of the Month. The prize? A year's worth of Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Check out Paul's and Gemma's stories.

Pricing

We're a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation. We create these events because we love to – and because we believe they can help make a real difference to people and the environment.

So all we ask is for enough to cover our costs. Anything over will be put straight back in to making more great events.

But we want everyone to be able to take part in our events, regardless of circumstances.

So if you cannot pay, just get in touch and we'll give you a discount code for a free ticket, no questions asked.
