The challenge: How many times could you climb Arthur’s Seat in a day?

For the 5th year we return to Arthur’s Seat for a challenge you’ll never forget.

You have three options:

6 hours: Mad Starter (Starts at 2 pm on Saturday. Current record of 16 ascents)

12 hours: Mad Mover (Starts at 8 am on Saturday. Current record of 33 ascents)

24 hours: Mad Master (Starts at 8 pm on Friday. Current record of 61 ascents)

Start times will be staggered so that everyone finishes together, at 8pm Saturday.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for MAD Seat 2020 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
