X3 Consulting complete the 26 mile Rob Roy Mighty Hike

On Saturday the 3rd September 4 members of the X3 Consulting team completed 26 mile long marathon along the Rob Roy Way, following in the footsteps of Rob Roy MacGregor, a famous figure in Scottish Folklore in aid of MacMillan cancer support. The team started the marathon at 7.30am and finished in just over 9 hours at 4.32pm. The team have collective managed to raise £1,878.00 for the charity. Nick Tucker, Kelly Tucker, Jaco Estherhuysen, Tanya Esterhuysen were also support by Jaco’s son William and his girlfriend Liberty on the hike.

In the months before the event the team trained hard in preparation for the day long marathon. The Rob Roy Way is a 79-mile route linking Drymen to Pitlochry in Perthshire. It follows in the footsteps of Rob Roy MacGregor, a famous figure in Scottish Folklore, and the mountainous Scottish Highlands provide a stunning backdrop for the Rob Roy Mighty Hike.

The Rob Roy Mighty Hike is predominantly a flat route with good underfoot conditions. While it is one of our more accessible hikes, it is still a demanding challenge, particularly if the weather is poor. The route covered approximately 26 miles from Callander to Killin, along the Rob Roy Way.

“A few years ago my father was diagnosed and died from cancer. The impact of this disease on his quality of life was stark and without the amazing Macmillan team and their ongoing support his end of days would have been vastly different. I’m proud to promote the Might Hike as a way to generate revenue for a truly outstanding organisation who really does make a significant difference daily to so many people.”

In 2020 we’re going to be doing the Lake District Mighty Hike taking in the breathtaking scenery of Ullswater as head from Dalemain House around the southern tip of the lake, and up to Lowther Castle.

In 2019 we dipped our toe walking from Alnwick to Bamburgh Castle along the Northumberland Coastline which was a spectacular experience.
