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.

Day 1 - Harris

Saturday 25th April
Well, after a bit of jiggery pokery, oor Mad Manny has got off to a great start, ie he managed the first hill. The tele call said that he started approx 12 midday and (with another walker) had a congenial up and down, on the hill that is, and after a bit of mist and clagg, in typical fashion, he got a view to the Uists in a 30 sec sunburst, once he had descended. Anyway, him and crew are currently holed up in a rather convenient hostelry, ie beer and grub, and will endeavour to start day 2 if things don't get the Whisky Galore treatment.

Well done Boyo, 1 down, 218 to go...
