There are several long distance hikes I want to do over the next few years, and one of them I've had my eye on for a while is the TGO Challenge. TGO or "The Great Outdoors" is a magazine published in the UK.
The TGO Challenge is a ~200 mile hike from the west coast to the east coast of Scotland.
Of course… unlike hiking in the Pacific Northwest – Scotland has a generous helping of pubs to stop at along the way 🙂
Every year in October, TGO magazine publishes the entry forms for the challenge, which is held in May. It's an oversubscribed event every year and space is allocated by lottery. The official challenge site is http://www.tgochallenge.co.uk/.
I may have missed the window to apply for 2008 – but
hopefully I'll I RESOLVE to be more on top of it next year. 🙂
