Great Strides Ben Nevis Challenge Weekend 2018 ™

Join Team CF for this challenging walk. Standing at 1343m high, Ben Nevis is the highest point in the Scottish and British Isles.

On a clear day the view from the peak is one of the most breath-taking sights in Scotland.

Grab friends and family from across the country for this challenging event, climbing the United Kingdom’s highest mountain. This is not an easy event, there will be sweat, quite possibly tears and we promise your legs will ache afterwards, but its an amazing chance to get together and help fight for a life unlimited for those affected with Cystic Fibrosis.
