Day 11 – Corona Mountain Goat Challenge

The sun must have been out today. 31 goats pulled on their running apparel… But wasn’t it cold? So what happened today?

Day 10 – Corona Mountain Goat Challenge

The skies darkened in Buckinghamshire today… It was noticeable how many fewer people were out and about. (I assume the Government will interpret it as “their successful lockdown” campaign. But actually it just rained… Whoops dd I nearly get political there!). Most importantly did it stop our goats? Did Lisa ever remember WHY she wanted […]

Day 9 – Corona Mountain Goat Challenge

Oh my giddy aunt! Day 9 and the bar has once again been raised… Surely we must now have found the limit of Capra Aegagrus Hircus performance? Surely our goats have no more to give… And yet if I learned anything in the last eight days it is that there are some seriously competitive athletes […]

Day 5 – Corona Mountain Goat Challenge

Surely they can’t keep it up all week?!?!? Well the sun shone and the fight for the overall title of Corona Mountain Goat Champion became real… Far from fading out, day 5 saw new names and some more big hills. Could this be the last day of sunshine for the week though? Are they just […]

Day 4 – Corona Mountain Goat Challenge

A new psychological dimension today, the first day of ‘lockdown lite’ across the UK. Would our Goats be sure footed enough to take it in their strides? Certainly the weather continued to be in their favour… And what of the mini-challenge? With all this pressure mounting up on them, would they disappoint?
