The Veteran Women's Munro Relay for Free to Run is a Scottish based group of women planning to do a continuous self propelled round of all the Munros in Scotland.

There are 282 Munros - mountains over 3000 feet in old currency or 914 metres in the metric world. They are in some of the most beautiful, remote parts of Scotland and involve some wild and challenging landscapes.

This is a tough challenge as we will climb some 137000 metres, cover over 2500 kilometres by land and water, running where we can and cycling and kayaking in between.

We are celebrating being active as we age. We are all 40 years plus with many of us in our 60s.

We are runners, orienteers and cyclists who love the freedom of being outdoors exploring our wild lands. We know we are privileged and appreciate the opportunities we have. We are free to run, however this is not the case for women and girls everywhere so we are delighted to be able to support and raise funds for Free to Run.

Free to Run is a small charity that empowers women and girls through sport, training women as leaders in areas where it is more difficult for women and girls to be active. Their current programme is operating in Iraq and funds raised through our actions will go to support the programme there.

Fran Loots - who set the ball rolling said...

I had this daft notion in lockdown to do something to celebrate what we can do. I have always fancied an outdoor challenge involving other women. I tentatively suggested the idea of an all female relay last summer to some friends. The response was an overwhelming YES. And so the germ of an idea has grown with lots of work happening in the background and fabulous support from a great team of women.

About the charity

Free to Run drives change in community gender norms in conflict areas, by supporting adolescent girls & young women to advance their leadership and wellness through running.
