TGO Challenge Route Plan

in Outdoors

I finished drawing my TGO Challenge route a few days ago, when I say finished I haven't submitted it for checking yet and I haven't drawn the Foul Weather Alternatives (finding this hard to do). I posted the route a couple of days ago on Twitter, but hadn't broken it down into days. These can now be seen in the table below, had to hand code that HTML Table

Day Destination Distance
Day 0 (Thursday) Shiel Bridge 0 miles
Day 1 (Friday) Glen Affric 12 miles
Day 2 (Saturday) Plodda Falls (After Cougie) 13 miles
Day 3 (Sunday) Fort Augustus 18 miles
Day 4 (Monday) Garva Bridge 15.5 miles
Day 5 (Tuesday) Kingussie 18 miles
Day 6 (Wednesday) Rothiemurchus 16.5 miles
Day 7 (Thursday) Corrour Bothy 9 miles
Day 8 (Friday) Marr Lodge/Braemar 9/13.5 miles
Day 9 (Saturday) Braemar 4.5/0 miles
Day 10 (Sunday) Glas-alt-Shiel (Loch Muick) 14 miles
Day 11 (Monday) Tarfside 17.5 miles
Day 12 (Tuesday) North Water Bridge 17 miles
Day 13 (Wednesday) St Cyrus 8 miles

The GPX File I posted on Twitter can be found here, the rounded figures above total 172 miles (short for the challenge). All of this could change before I submit it and very likely after its checked.

I'm not really sure if it's the "done" thing posting your route in advance but quoting from the challenge outline "foster good fellowship among walkers". In my experience walkers like nothing better than talking about routes, other than maybe talking about gear.

Now off to work out the Foul Weather Alternatives!
