Big Black Mountains Challenge 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.

Big Black Mountains Challenge – COVID19 update

To All our BBMC 2020 competitors,

We wish to reassure you that we are keeping an eye on the current developments regarding COVID19. Currently, outdoor events have not been identified as requiring cancellation, and there are a number of measures that can be taken to further reduce risk. However, in light of the announcements of Monday 16th to reduce unnecessary contact, in the coming weeks it may be necessary to postpone Big Black Mountains Challenge until later in the year or cancel this years event. The organising committee will continue to monitor the situation and will make a decision by the end of March. Please continue to check our website and social media accounts for further updates
