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 20 - Thurs 14th May– Glen Lyon

Well, the boy is doing mighty fine. Manny managed to bag, Meall Tairneachan, Farragon Hill, Beinn Dearg, Carn Chreag, plus Meall nam Maigheach. That means not only did he climb the planned hills for the day, but managed to nab one from the next day, thus trying to eat into the three days that have been dropped from the original plan. Another 5 Corbett day is great so well done mucka!

A huge thanks to Davy Duncan for lugging my MTB up to the mine at Meall Tairneachan and waiting on me returning from Faragon Hill, to allow a very fast descant escape from the horrible industrialised scene and gigantic dust bowl...and then later the same day my MTB to just below Cam Chreag for an absolute superb technical fast descent for 3 miles!!
Awesome fun!!!!!
