About MAD Seat 2019

MAD Seat – 31st May to 1st June

What: An outdoor endurance event where participants have to climb Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh, as many times as they can in a day!

Why: Not for money! Participants collect sponsorship in the form of pledges of sustainable habits – things like cycling to work, eating less meat or using less plastic. There are loads to choose from.

How long: Choose from three options – 24, 12 and 6 hours – then go for as many, or few, ascents as you like! There’ll be a base camp with plenty of good food, warm drinks, great support and sneaky nap spots for the whole time.

How much: Tickets start from just £8, if you book before the New Year.

To find out more and book your ticket, visit: https://madchallenges.org/mad-seat-2019/

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for MAD Seat 2019 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
