A team of scientists and support staff from The James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen is set to race through Scotland’s Great Glen on Friday (August 25) to help raise cash for Scottish farming charity RSABI.

The team, the Hutton Unconformities, are hoping to help RSABI, which provides emotional, practical and financial support to people in Scottish agriculture, reach its £50,000 fundraising goal for the Great Glen Challenge event.

To complete the challenge, the team of four will race along a route consisting of a 49 km mountain bike trail, 6 km of kayaking, 18 km of walking, and 17 km running, between Fort Augustus and Fort William.

Team captain and Hutton social sciences research assistant Esther Banks says, “We’re really excited to be taking part in the challenge. We’ve already had a great time training, it’s a fantastic day out and we’re just really happy to be able to support such an important cause – the work that RSABI does is so essential.”

The rest of the team members are Project Coordinator for Glensaugh Climate-Positive Farming Initiative Scot Ramsay, Environmental Microbiologist Lisa Avery and media officer Elaine Maslin, with Chief Operating Officer Alasdair Cox helping the team as support driver.
