Mental Hillness 2010


Mental Hillness is an endurance mountain bike ride and fell run, where cyclists and runners are challenged to complete a particularly challenging and hilly off-road circuit as many times as possible in 12 hours for charity.

Many non-runners and non-cyclists have often questioned the motives and ‘soundness of mind’ of people competing in similar endurance challenges. They ask questions such as ‘Are you crazy?’ or ‘Why would you abuse your body like that?’. This is an opportunity to raise awareness, and money, to support charities that help people who experience suffering caused by real abuse and mental health illnesses.

All proceeds to
Mental Health Foundation, Independent Choices and Grapevine Project.

The Riders course is 10km long and has been chosen to avoid major roads. It involves over 400 metres of accent and descent! Runners have a slightly shorter route, but it still involves over 400 metres of accent and descent!
