​Just 50 places available for extreme sporting challenge

Volunteering charity ProjectScotland is launching an extreme sporting challenge to test competitors to the limit.

Just 50 fundraisers will be picked for the Unbreakable challenege, undertaking a series of gruelling challenges as they cycle, swim, sail, kayak and hike across Scotland over eight days, from 2 - 9 August.

Participants will travel through iconic Scottish locations from Edinburgh and Fort William, to Glencoe and Aberfoyle, covering a 940km journey.

Paul Reddish, chief executive of ProjectScotland, said the charity aimed to raise £100,000 to help young people in Scotland get on in life.

He added: “From cycling over 100km almost every day to climbing a Munro mountain and open water swimming in beautiful Loch Lomond, Unbreakable will test applicants’ endurance, grit, and mental determination.

“There’s no denying that this is an extreme challenge, which is why we’ve named it Unbreakable.

“And just to keep it interesting, we’re throwing in some archery, high wires and grass sledging – this is going to be tough, wimps need not apply.

“Given the magnitude of the challenge, training and preparation is essential, which is why we’ve partnered with Olympic athlete David Carry to host an outdoor swimming and water skills masterclass in June.”
