The Archie rabbit will be completing the whole Archie Mountain Challenge. He will be carried by more than 100 people running, cycling and canoeing. He will see the tops of the 130 Scottish mountains which are more than a kilometre high. He will travel more than 1300km and ascend the equivalent of Everest 10 times. You can track his progress via our website (www.archiesmountainchallengeorg.uk)
Please sponsor our cuddly baton to raise money for the Archie Foundation and the Tayside childrens hospital.

About the Archie Mountain Challenge ....
Although all modern maps are metric, there is no classification of mountains in Scotland based on a metric measurement, so we are making one! From now on we'll be (unofficially!) calling every mountain that is more than 1km high an "ARCHIE". We are going to climb them all this Summer , travelling between them on foot or bike, and taking a GPS locator to prove we've done it.
