Have you been inspired by the mountains?
Perhaps something amazing, exciting, harrowing, or particularly memorable happened; or maybe just being in a beautiful place gave you a new appreciation of your life. Whatever your experience, we want to celebrate these life-changing mountains with you.
The monthly competition is a partnership between the John Muir Trust – which looks after some of Britain’s most famous mountains including Ben Nevis, Bla Bheinn and Helvellyn –outdoor mountain gear company Mountain Equipment and Trail Magazine.
Each month for the rest of this year, a winning entry will be published in Trail magazine. The winner will also receive a year’s membership of the John Muir Trust and up to £100 worth of Mountain Equipment kit.
All you have to do is send your 400-word account of the single most memorable day you have spent in the outdoors and every month we will publish the best.
At the end of the year, one overall winner will be selected to spend a day on a John Muir Trust managed mountain such as Ben Nevis or Helvellyn with a Mountain Equipment professional tailoring and then guiding them to an memorable experience. The overall winner will also get the opportunity to write a feature- length article for Trail magazine.
