Description

MAD Challenges presents, MAD Seat.


The Challenge

Arthur's Seat, a 250m high majestic symbol of Scotland's stunning landscape, located for your convenience in the middle of Edinburgh.

Have you ever wondered how many times you could climb it in one day? We have and we've tested it out. Now it's your turn...

The Challenge: climb Arthur's Seat as many times as you can within:

· 24hrs = MAD Master

· 12hrs = MAD Mover

· 6hrs = MAD Starter


What's the record?

Last year one of our MAD participants completed an incredible 41 ascents within 24 hours! A mighty tough target to beat... Fancy your chances?


A different kind of sponsorship...

MAD Challenges works with Do Nation - an online platform that allows people to pledge action, not money.

The pledges, called 'Do Actions', are cost-free commitments of small but significant changes in habit. They're designed to improve your health, be kind on your wallet and reduce our impact on the environment.

Part of the deal in taking part in MAD Seat is that you gather some Do Nation pledges. A good target to aim for is getting 25 people to pledge one or more actions - you can even sponsor yourself!


Entry fee:

We don't charge an entry fee for MAD Seat but it does cost us money to run... If you like what we do and want to support the running of the event - the basecamp, toilet facilities and water provisions - you can donate when securing your tickets. Even just £10 would be a huge help


Kit:

You are expected to wear appropriate clothing for an outdoor endurance event. We all know how unpredictable the Scottish summer weather can be so we recommend layers, sturdy but comfortable footwear, waterproofs and a headtorch (if you're going for the Gold challenge/MAD Master!). You must bring your own food required for the duration of the event. There will be a base camp at the foot of Arthur's Seat that you can stop off at for a rest, use the bathroom and refill your water bottles.


PLEASE NOTE

Arthur's Seat is a public peak and we expect footfall on the hill to be busy throughout the event. Please be respectful of other pedestrians during your challenge.

We want all MAD Seat participants to complete their chosen challenge, however we reserve the right to ask participants to exit the event if we have reasonable concern regarding their fitness level, health or safety. We will be present throughout the whole event to support and encourage but please consider your level of fitness before selecting your entry level.

Disclaimer:

MAD Challenges does not provide liability insurance for the protection of individuals, groups, organisations, spectators or others who may participate in MAD Seat. Add participants are expected to adhere to the Scottish Access Code.
