    You have to pay 30.00 registration fee and raise 150.00, if you raise the 150.00 you get the 30.00 back, although I'll just donate that to Balmore too.

    Thumbs up

    Someone I know did the firewalk last year and said that it was the experience of a lifetime. So come on, walk the walk for Balmore. You may never get the chance again

    Some potential walkers feel they may be unable to raise the 150, so therefore if anyone is keen to do the walk - after you pay the reservation fee of 30, raise as much sponsorship as you can (without robbing a bank) - the organisers don't want anyone to miss out on the experience of a lifetime.

    If you don't raise the 150 do you just make it up youself?

    No - We are happy to accept whatever sponsorship you can raise. Obviously the more the better but we want to get as many people walking as we can - should be more fun that way.

    Default Firewalk

    This should be a great event, although the SSPCA still need more daring people who will do the FIREWALK. First time in Caithness, so come on and take up this challenge.
