Now in its 13th year, the Quad attracted over 400 participants and was basking in glorious conditions throughout the event. And the important part is that over £150,000 has already been raised from this years event for Mercy Corps and Mary’s Meals.
Well done all those who took part or supported. There are many adventure challenges to choose from in the calendar, but what make the Quad and other WildFox Events unique is the whole weekend of activities that go on around the challenge – including ceilidh, fireworks, the feast and much more – and also the big focus on fundraising for charity. Everyone who takes on the Quad has made a significant commitment to the charities, as well as taking on one of Scotland toughest one day events.
Having experienced how superb this event is, I am keen to help the team from WildFox make next years even bigger. I see that they are offering early bird sign up for the 2014 Quad – £150 per person in a team of 2 or £100 per person in a relay team. Once the first 50 places are taken, the next 100 places are also discounted to £180 per person in a team of two, or £120 per person in a relay team. Thereafter registration fees will revert to their full price of £220 per person in a team of two or £160 per person in a relay team.
If you are really keen you can try and beat our time of 8 hours and 37 minutes… but I would warn you that you would be paying for it. I couldn’t face stairs for a few days without my legs screaming in protest!
