BBMC 2021 update

As most of you will know, the pandemic resulted in the cancellation of our 2020 BBMC. After careful consideration we feel that even by May 2021 it is unlikely that we will be able to hold the event.

We have, therefore, made the decision to hold a revised event in November 2021. It will be a scaled down event due to shorter days but should still provide a beautiful day out in the mountains. We will publish more information later in the year and entries will open in June 2021.

The BBMC is our major fundraising event and as a charity enables us to continue our life saving service and your support is greatly appreciated.
