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.
