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 31 - Gaick Pass to Glenfeshie

Just a quick update to let all you Blog addicts know that the Fara was completed by Manny and Dave in sunshine last night allowing Manny to complete the 4 corbetts between the Gaick Pass and Glenfeshie today.

I joined him for the last 2, Meallach Mhor and Carn Dearg Mor and despite more peeing rain he was in good form and going strong. He was last spotted in the Suie scoffing yet more grub washed down with a couple of pints of Trade Winds in preparation for heading off for a hard time by his favourite physio to see if he can get his gammy leg sorted out.

I must say that having read reports of his leg "hinging aff" I was a bit unimpressed by the lack of limping that has been going on over the last couple of days. However when I suggested that the condition be officially downgraded to "a bit sair" I was told it merited at least a ranking of "affy sair". No doubt Alison will give a full diagnosis tonight.

Manny has promised to give a full update in his own inimitable style soon.
