Beat Tinto For Beatson #T38

#T38 Update: September 21st

After the extreme conditions of the high winds last week it was back to Sun & 24c this week. Slight improvement on the time but still struggling with a 61min.

Thank you to Rod for pacing me in tough conditions..

Many thanks to Lynda for her donation of £475 which takes our total with gift aid to over £5k!


Beat Tinto For Beatson # T37

#T37 Update:

Completed on 14th September it was the 3rd slowest time at 63min heading into a 50mph head wind. Weather is going to be unpredictable now until the end of the year so the 13 previous weeks at sub 60min will help keep me on track and ahead of the 52hr target.


Conditions were tough but the views great!

Thank you for your continued support:

T36 Update:

Day 2 of the Beat Tinto weekend. I was delighted to be joined by Laura and Dad Hugh along with my three cousins Stephanie, Nicole & Gillian.

The conditions were very changeable but thankfully better than Saturdays strong winds. Congratulations to everyone who took part and also for the amazing fundraising that they did for the climb. Total to be confirmed but it has taken a significant jump up which is fantastic!

Time was slightly better today 57.13min extending my 13week sub 60 run. Everyone enjoyed their day the pictures tell their own story :

T35 Update:

A double session was planned for this weekend. Saturday’s weather was brutal, 75kph head wind 💨 taking me back to similar conditions in March when the hill easily won and I slipped to the worst recorded time of the year in 65min. This time I was delighted with a 59.52min which kept my unbeaten 12 week sub 60min run going. Back home to rest up and meet up with the team in the morning.

That was in the top 3 for toughness today, hopefully better weather tomorrow!



Countdown to T35 & T36… Beat Tinto Team Day

On Sunday September 1st we’re having another Beat Tinto Team day! The group will be meeting 10.30am at Tinto car park , my plan is to do both a Saturday & Sunday climb this week and get one week ahead of schedule. If you haven’t tried it yet and would like to Beat Tinto and help raise awareness for the Beatson please come along and you’ll be made more than welcome!

Hopefully see you at Tinto !

#T34 Update: 😎

After a wee taste of the winds again last week it was back to scorching conditions. 24c on the hill this week making it a hard climb. Time slightly better again bringing it back down to 56.56min so fairly pleased with that.

Plan now is to try hit the 52min mark before the end of September before the weather gets tougher again. Looking forward to next weeks group climb on the Sunday and highlighting the amazing work that the Beatson continuously does…. details for next Sunday will be published this week.


Every donation makes a huge difference! £25 buys an hour of complementary therapy for a patient and currently we have raised £3K which funds a clinical nurse specialist for a month ! THANK YOU

#T33 Update:

After a long warm dry spell the high winds returned with a vengeance. It was like a windy day in March again and a wee taste of what’s around the corner in the months ahead. It was a slow disappointing time 58.44min but still positives to be taken, 10 weeks in a row under 60min and ONLY 19 to go !!😀

As always thank you for your continued support!



Beat Tinto For Beatson #T32 😅

T32 Update:

The warm weather continued with a very hot & humid climb, only 22c this time but humidity was high and it felt much tougher. Hill was quiet this week but time was slower 57.27min. We are nearly 1 hour ahead of schedule now as we approach the last 20 climbs. Had great news today that 3 of my cousins are joining the group climb on September 1st to help raise awareness for the Beatson. The reason that we are doing it become very real again this week as my cousin that has been receiving treatment at the Beatson has had to start chemotherapy again, we are all thinking of her and it will make us doubly to finish the challenge and raise awareness.



Beat Tinto For Beatson # T31 😎

Update T31:

Conditions were tough for T31, hottest day on the hill so far this year, 25c and Sunny ☀️. Hill was super busy with another charity event but delighted to be up and down in 55.14min making it a top 5 finish. Countdown continues only another 21 climbs to go. Group event September 1st if you’d like to get involved.

Thank you for all the encouragement couldn’t do it without the continued support
