We delighted to say Mark Trodden and his team are back in production again! Mark says:
“When taking part in a tough multi-day event like the TGO Challenge you need a meal plan designed to give you the energy and nutrients needed to get you through, without it feeling like you’re carrying half the contents of your kitchen.
With best quality dehydrated and freeze-dried ingredients, our Food on the Move and Endurance Foods branded meal pouches have been specially developed to provide lightweight, high quality, energy-packed and surprisingly delicious meals for anyone undertaking arduous activity in the outdoors. Compared with ‘wet’ meals, our pouches are as little as 1/3rd the weight and use less fuel to prepare, so are also a great option when pack space and weight are an issue.
This will be our eighth year offering support to challengers, with 20% discount for challengers on all purchases, free samples for anyone who hasn’t tried our food before, and an enhanced delivery service. It is a testament to their taste, quality and our customer service that many challengers have used our products on two or more challenges to fuel their crossing and we’d be delighted to include you as one of our customers too.”
Go to mountaintrails.org.uk/Offers/TGOC23.htm to find their offers page and use the code TGOC23 to receive your discount.
TentMeals are again supporting TGO entrants with 20% off the full range of meals and snacks again this year. Use the code TentMealsTGO23 when ordering.
Jessica from TentMeals says:
“We are a small company on a mission to make the best camping/expedition meals. Meals are only release when we think they’re good enough to eat at home and we strive for everything to be super healthy, delicious, instant, high energy, small and light.”
Western Isle Cruises (01687 462233) cannot offer a discount anymore for Challengers on Mallaig to Inverie ferry but they still offer an excellent service. They will use their larger boat on busy crossing to ensure all Challengers who want to can cross to Inverie.
