runABC is in the process of upgrading and improving its online service so you might encounter the odd glitch over the next week or so but rest assured we’re working on them and the new site will be a fantastic resource for our running community.

The challenge: How many times could you climb Arthur’s Seat in a day?

For the 5th year we return to Arthur’s Seat for a challenge you’ll never forget.

You have three options:

6 hours: Mad Starter (Starts at 2 pm on Saturday. Current record of 16 ascents)
12 hours: Mad Mover (Starts at 8 am on Saturday. Current record of 33 ascents)
24 hours: Mad Master (Starts at 8 pm on Friday. Current record of 61 ascents)
Start times will be staggered so that everyone finishes together, at 8pm Saturday.

We welcome all levels of fitness and ability as our events are tailored to be inclusive for all. Please have a think about your experience before selecting a level of difficulty. We want Mad Seat to be fun but safe, so we reserve the right to ask any participants to withdraw if we feel their health, wellbeing, or safety is under threat.
