Beat Tinto For Beatson #T47

#T47 Update: Minus Temperatures for the 47th Tinto this week . With the 27th sub 60min up & down (59.48min) it ensures that the hill can’t win the head to heads ! With 5 climbs still to go we also hit the the fundraising target too! Over £5200 raised with £1000 gift aid in addition thanks to everyone who has supported this great cause. The one last challenge is to finish all 52 climbs in less than 52 hours so there’s a bit of work still to be done.

Thank you for all the support and encouragement over the past 12 months ! K

#T46 Update:

It was fantastic to be joined for the 46th Tinto today by both  Andrew & Lynda. Conditions were fair, 9c, low cloud & a light head wind. After some recent poor times it was great to be back on the right side of 60 again inspired by the blistering pace that Andrew set pulling me up & down in 56.54min.. Thank you Andrew & thank you Lynda for looking after Cal who was officially on a rest day although he thought otherwise 🐶💨

Andrews pace was that fast even his pic is a blur! Can’t thank everyone enough for all the support I’ve received both at the hill & at the club it’s been fantastic, only 6 climbs left we’re going to smash the target 🎯!


Beat Tinto For Beatson # T-7…Look who’s Back!

update #T45:

Conditions were tough, temperature dropped to 5c this week and the ground was very heavy and muddy underfoot. Was struggling to keep up the pace my time slipped to 63.56min, but I rolled out my secret weapon for inspiration, back on the hill after a 6 month break. Between us we’ve done 60 Tinto’s this year! Thanks Cal couldn’t have done it without you 🐶

Update #T-8:

Tammy was back! 3c with light dusting of snow & ice at the top. Tough climb today with heavy boggy conditions at the bottom and ice at the top but it was worth it just to get the views ! Wrong side of 60 again with 61.10 min so extra determination to get sub 60 next week.. I’ll be unleashing my secret weapon again soon, he’s not been there since April but hopefully he’ll pull me up and down to a better time in the not too distant future. 🐶

Thank you for your continued support!


Linda that one was for you..good luck for Tuesday !

Beat Tinto For Beatson #T-9

Update #T-9:

Well finally we’re into single figures! 9 to go. It was a really enjoyable climb today in tough conditions. Turned out it was the Tinto hill race day, unfortunately I didn’t know it was on and didn’t get the chance to compete in it. We started 26min behind the race and spent most of the ascent dodging in and out of the runners. Amazing to see how it can be done by true athletes, well done to the 200 that took part. 60min 30sec for me not too shabby in the heavy mucky conditions.

Thank you for all the continued support !

Peter ! That one was for you .. thank you for your support

Get Tinto Done #T42

Update Wk 42:

Another landmark 42 done, only 10 to go ! Hardest conditions since before Easter.. 8c, strong winds, hail & rain. Surprisingly clocked a sub 60min with 59.30min, so the rehabilitation & extra training is helping ! Thank you to everyone for your continued help and support.. Physio, gym & hill buddies!

Down to single figures next week!



Beat Tinto For Beatson #T41

T41 Update:

Only 11 to go !! Another cold wet day, extra training in the gym this week to try combat the niggles. Slight improvement on the time back down to 60.28min, felt stronger so hopefully break the 60 min next time ..


Beat Tinto For Beatson #T40

T40 Update:

40 Tinto’s completed! £5k raised thanks to all the fabulous support that I have received.. can’t thank you enough it’s for an amazing cause !

Sun was shining today but the conditions were very wet and slippy underfoot. Poor time with 62.14min, couple of niggles now after 40 consecutive weeks, so back to the gym to rehab for next week..




Beat Tinto For Beatson #T39

T39 Update:

After the last of the Summer Sun on wk 38 it was back to cold, wet & windy. Time was 60.15 min so as the wet slippy conditions come in it will be more about protecting the time advantage that was built up over the Summer but hopefully there will be a few sub 60’s before we finish.
