HIGHLAND ADVENTURE RACE 2012

At the weekend I was up in the Scottish Highlands shooting the Invesco Perpetual Highland Adventure Race. Its a team race from sea level to the highest point in the UK, with a mix of veterans and first timers taking part. It is also a charity event raising thousands of pounds for The Mitchemp Trust which help vulnerable and under priverlaged children get a better start.

The race started on the Saturday at Inverness Castle, with a 36 mile mountain biking stage along the length of Loch Ness with many challenging ascents and steep descents, finishing at Fort Augustus. Following on immediately from that was a canoe stage.  This was meant to be a 9 miles canoe passage along the Canedonian but due to high winds this was halved.  The weather made it no less challenging though. The final stage was on the Sunday with an ascent to the summit of Ben Nevis, at 4416 ft. Getting up at 4am both days, I followed the teams every step of the way to cover as much of the action and atmosphere as possible.  Editing 3000 images in two and a half hours was some what of a challenge. It was a lot of fun to do and the organisers and volunteers were amazing!! Here are some of pics.
