The Great Wilderness Challenge Committee (GWC) is delighted to announce that in 2023 we will be working in a closer partnership with Highland Hospice. 

Many of the current committee have been part of the GWC for over 30 years - some from its initial inception in 1986 and we now feel the time is right to reflect and renew how the organisation operates.

Working more closely with the Highland Hospice will enable the event to grow and continue to benefit both the Hospice and our local community. The Hospice will take over the promotion and marketing of the event – in particular the use of social media - and also event registration.  

The committee will continue to organise the event on the ground both before and on the day of the Challenge which means that so far as participants and marshals are concerned the status quo will remain.

Local charities will continue to be supported by the GWC and further details of this will be sent out to everyone in due course. 

The GWC has been beneficial to many people and organisations in the local area over the years and we do of course rely very much on the support of the local community in terms of marshalling, catering, sponsorship etc.  We hope everyone will continue to support us with this new structure and that the event will continue to flourish for many years to come.
