This blog describes Manny Gorman's successful round of all 219 Corbetts in 70 days, in one continuous journey by running, cycling and sailing.

Manny's 70 Day Schedule

The Corbetts are Scottish hills between 2,500 and 3,000ft, with at least 500ft ascent on all sides.

The Schedule

Here is Manny and Brenda's provisional schedule.

The plan is to start on Harris with Clisham on Saturday 25th April, then polish off the island Corbetts first with a sail down the Scottish west coast taking in Skye, Rum, Mull, Jura and Arran en route. The idea is to hit the mainland at Troon around the 1st of May to tackle the Galloway and Borders hills during 3rd and 4th May, before the long cycle north to arrive at the Arrochar hill for 6th May.

No doubt the schedule will vary over time, so please check this blog for the current status of Manny and Brenda's progress.

Manda, you nutter - will look forward to seeing you early May. Jenny reckons she'll be blabing with Brenny in the van and unlikely you will see her off road. I will see what kinda form I'm in Sat 9th and Sun 10th.

Hope you get wind in your boat and not on your hills!!

That is one big task you are setting yourself, best of luck. Hope you keep the blog up to date as I will enjoy following your progress.

Busy doing the Corbetts myself, a bit slower than your target, I reckon about 8 Years, it took me 7 years to do the Munros :-)

On you go, Bigman! Looking forward to sharing the Arran and border hills with you, so if you're planning to burst an ankle (almost inevitable, given your track record!), try to do it after May 4th...
