Beat Tinto For Beatson #T22

#T22 Update:

Tinto was hiding under the clouds today for the 22nd climb. It was a laboured effort but still under the hour mark at 58.03min which finally evens the score at 11-11 and nearly 11mins ahead of schedule. Again this week we have received more pledges and sponsorship thank you very much every penny counts !



#T21 Beat Tinto For Beatson

#T21 Update:

The weather was beautiful for the 21st Tinto, sunny & 17c. Cal had earned his rest after two weeks back to back. Time was 57.04 min so not too bad. We are now nearly 10mins inside the 52hr target and hoping to add to the total this week coming. With gift aid we are now through the £2k barrier thank you as always for your continued support!




#T20 Beat Tinto For Beatson

#T20 Update:

After the excitement of the Team Beatson day on #T18, the last couple of weeks have been difficult with fatigue & a virus, all credit to Rod & Cal who have been keeping me going and surprisingly I managed 58.50min last Sunday. Hoping for better this week as the countdown to halfway is looming close. Thank you again for all your continued support we are now approaching the £2K mark ! Putting this into perspective £1.5K funds the running of the Beatson Well-Being Centre for one day !

#T19 Beat Tinto For Beatson

#T19 Update:

After the fantastic weather and support from both the Beatson and Body Morph clients last week it was back to normal this week. Leggings and rain jacket were back on as the temperature dropped and rain returned, we even had a clap of thunder. The good news was that the conditions were perfect for my four legged friend as Cal returned for his 13th climb. Physically it was tough this week and having Cal pull me up and down was a great help! It was very much a consolidation week as we clocked 60.14min not bad under the circumstances.

Well done again to everyone who participated last week especially Christine who’s personal efforts have raised an amazing £250 towards the total!

#T18 Beat Tinto For Beatson

#T18 Update:

Saturday April 20th was the day we turned Tinto yellow! Thank you to everyone who came along both from the Beatson and from Body Morph Fitness. The sun was shining and the conditions were perfect. The hill was extremely busy but despite the heat I was up and down in 55.07min which is a new record. We are now 5 minutes ahead of the clock. It was mission accomplished as we raised more awareness for the cause and added over £600 to our existing total which will take us through the £1500 mark ! Brilliant thank you all for your continued support.

Plenty of pictures to share this week plus drone footage will follow once it’s been edited.

If you’d like to join us for our next Turn Tinto Yellow event in the coming weeks please get in touch for details




#T17 Beat Tinto For Beatson

#T17 Update:

Two climbs this week, despite the fantastic pictures provided by Ross, conditions were extremely tough on Saturday with the wind chill and strong winds. That aside my two companions hauled me up and down in a new best time of 55.27min thank you Ross and Rod !

We are now back level with the clock after slipping 15 min behind through the worst of the weather.

We are now looking forward to having a group session this Saturday coming with various starting times. First time out will be 10am, this is for anyone expecting to take 3hrs or more with the last start time around 1pm when I’ll have another go at beating my record.

Everyone is welcome, we’re all there for same reason to raise funds and awareness for the Beatson and the fantastic work that they do. Please get in touch if you’d like to take part.


Thank you you for all your help and support


#T16 Beat Tinto For Beatson

#T16 Update:

Best day of the year by far! That’s one climb ahead of schedule now too! Rolled out my secret weapon (Cal) again for his 12th climb and he got his best time of 57.06min that’s 10.30min back against the clock in the last 3 climbs! Only hazard today was the farmer burning off the heather Cal didn’t like that as we had to run through the smoke. Saturday’s forecast is also good so looking forward hopefully to another good time.


Thank you you for all your continued support!



#T15 Beat Tinto For Beatson

#T15 Update :

Conditions were good for a fast time this week: mild, drizzle & no wind but you can’t even see the hill in the background with the haze & mist.

It was first time back to back sub 60min with  a time of 56.27min. We’ve now clawed back 7.30 min against the clock in the last 2weeks giving us a total of 15hrs 8min. Plan now is to be level with the clock by the end of the month! After 15 climbs we’ve now past the height of Everest as we reach the 30,000ft mark. The score is now 10-5 in the favour of Tinto. Hopefully by the 20th climb it will be 10-10!

Thank you for all the continued support and sponsorship I couldn’t do it without it!




#T14 Beat Tinto For Beatson

#T14 Update:

On the first anniversary of the La Concha fundraiser climb it was perfect conditions for the 14th Tinto climb this week. 56.03min a Personal Best by nearly 3min so the overall time is now down to 14hrs 11min. No Cal this week as he was resting, so huge thanks to Rod for pacing me and making me work harder! On Saturday April 20th we’re hoping to encourage as many people as possible to join us whether your just wanting the challenge of the hill or raising funds towards the charity. Weather permitting we will be filming the trek that week too. If you’re interested in joining us please get in touch for details of start times as they will be staggered based on ability.

As always thank you for all the support & sponsorship we are fast approaching the £1000 mark …Amazing!! www.justgiving.com/beattintoforbeatson
