Thanks to all local outdoor clubs who visited us on Sunday for our club day. We had an excellent turnout from several clubs including Cults Hillwalking Club, Deeside Runners, Aboyne Ladies and Aberdeen Mountaineering Club.
As well as taking advantage of excellent deals, several bottles of wine and numerous cups of coffee were consumed while tales of 10K runs, munro bagging, ice climbs and long range treks were shared.
The next event at Hilltrek will be the visit of Chris Townsend on April 16th.
Chris is a well known long distance walker with several firsts under his belt including the first 1600mile trek along the Rockies and the first continous climb of all the Munros and tops (Scottish Mountains over 300o ft first listed by Sir Hugh Munro). As well as a gear reviewer in the TGO, Chris is an excellent writer and photographer, and on the day will sign his new book published by Cicerone on the Scottish Mountains called Scotland. Chris is also a Páramo fan and has recently tested our Foinaven Cotton AnalogyVentile Smock.
We look forward to seeing you there.
