On Thursday 1 March, Chris Townsend will give a talk about his 1700 mile continuous walk over all the Scottish Munros and their tops. The Dundee talk is part of the Tiso lecture series and will take place at the D’arcy Thompson Theatre at Dundee University at 7:30pm. Tickets are £6 (£4 concessions) (available from Dundee Tiso or bookable on the Tiso website) and the proceeds will go to Dundee University Rucksack Club.
Chris is a passionate enthusiast for the wilderness and has spent much of his life exploring wild places. Long distance hikes are his passion and he has completed many long distance walks including The Arizona Trail, the Corsican GR20 and across the High Sierra. He was also the first to walk the 1600 mile length of the Canadian Rockies.
And if you’re not in Dundee, you could catch Chris in Inverness on Wednesday 29 February when he is giving a talk for the Inverness Nordic and Ski Touring Club about the three igloo ski tours in Yellowstone National Park and the Wind River Range in Wyoming. The talk will be in the Glen Mhor Hotel, Inverness at 8pm, free for INSC members and £2.50 for non-members.
