Adventurers from Moray and beyond are being encouraged to take part in a cycling and hiking challenge organised by an RAF charity group.
The RAF Benevolent Fund Lossiemouth will stage the 66-mile Cairngorm to Coast event this spring, with proceeds going to servicemen and women both past and present.
The group hopes the 24-hour team event, which will take place over the weekend of May 23 and 24, will become an annual phenomenon.
Organiser Karen Cox said: “There is nothing like this in the Moray area, it’s a totally unique challenge.
“People will be trekking from the fourth highest peak in the United Kingdom in the Cairngorms down to sea level.
“The landscape here is so amazing, and we’re really wanting to make use of that in the challenge.
“We hope this will become an annual event and anyone involved this year could say they were part of the first one.
“The money will go towards supporting RAF personnel and their families – and veterans from World War II to current conflicts.”
The trek is split into two halves – with the first 33 miles being undertaken on foot and the second on bike.
Entrants will start at the Cairngorm Ski Centre car park and hike via the Ptarmigan Centre, Coire na Ciste and Glenmore
Lodge to Nethy Bridge where they will pick up the Speyside Way.
They will then continue along to Ballindalloch Castle, before getting on their bikes and cycling 33 miles along the route to RAF Lossiemouth.
