Run To Climb - Huu Lung Bolting Fund

Organised for: Benoit Tellier

RUN TO CLIMB - Crowdfunding to support the Hữu Lũng Bolting Fund

 

Three climbers have decided to raise $$$ for the Hữu Lũng bolting funds.

 

They will participate in the Vietnam Mountain Marathon on the 20th of Sept. Jean for the 100 km, Bran and Nga for the 42 km.

 

They expect to get 1 bolt for every kilometer they run. This total of 184 km changed in bolts costs about USD 1,290 with anchors.

 

If they DNF (Did Not Finish), they will contribute by themselves in bolts for the missing kilometers. If they succeed their challenge but don’t manage to raise sufficient funds, they will become runners ;)

Background:

In 2012, after 7 years of countless exploration, VietClimb finally discovered in the remote district of Hữu Lũng the object of its quest: the best rock and cliffs Nature offered to Vietnam. Since then, 100 routes have been developed for the climbing community and a traditional homestay has been renovated to contribute to the local economy.
