Everything Endurance #49 | A Month among the Munros, a new FKT with Donnie Campbell

Donnie Campbell summited all 282 Munros, the equivalent of climbing Everest 14 times, in 31 days 23hrs, breaking the previous record by over a week!

12th September, 2020

On Weds 2nd September at around 5am, adventurer, ultra-runner and coach Donnie Campbell finished a record attempt that had taken him 31days and 23hrs to complete.

He had summited all 282 Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000ft in height), completing the entire journey under his own power.  He covered almost 900 miles on foot and the same on a bike whilst enduring enough ascent to climb Everest 14 times.  In doing so, he beat the previous record by over a week!

In this episode we chat about his epic journey from forming the idea, through planning the monster logistics, to tackling a serious contender for the most epic record of this summer of FKTs.
