Cateran Yomp 2022

James (brother), Sarah and Laurie (both friends of J’s) and myself will be taking part in the Cateran Yomp, 4 –5 June 2022 for The Army Benevolent Fund (ABF). 

The Agriventurers are in training!

In the Cairngorm mountains the yomp (walk) is 54 miles in under 24 hours. In essence 3mph, with pit stops. 

Give it a try, it’s faster than you think!

The ABF supports soldiers and their families across the globe. They work tirelessly to look after current and former soldiers with all manner of difficulties. Many ex-service men and women are dependent on their help.

We would really appreciate it if you can spare a donation no matter how big or small. Honestly, it all makes a significant difference to ABF.

Yomp 2022 - Thanks for your sponsorship

Hi Everyone, 

I really appreciate you all pitching in for the ABF. You did a good thing! In total, the 600 odd yompers raised £500,000 which is staggering. 

The yomp was great fun, if you like pain! Mile 1 - 5 my camelbak leaked 2 litres of water down my legs into my boots, cracking start. From silver (mile 36) to gold (miles 54) was pretty brutal, with feet screaming and jelly legs. Thank god for drugs! All four of us made it across the line in just under 22 hours so smiles all around. We lucked out on the weather, thank you Scotland. 

As you would expect from an Army charity it was brilliantly organised. The food stops had amazing treats like ice cream before a long climb, haggis to top up salt loss and mac n cheese just after it had got dark and chilly. 

I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes slow torture around amazing people and beautiful scenery. 

I have included a few pics of what we go up to. 

Thanks again for your donation, 
Ed
