We’ve seen our Summerhill hats at some extraordinary venues over the years, including our old panamas on the occasional sunny days at Lord’s cricket ground in London, the old corduroy jobs at Twickenham in the rain in December, and now Lin Kayton popped up with a beanie at the summit of Kilimanjaro. Many times a Comrades athlete, Lin undertook the arduous trek to Kilimanjaro in the charitable cause of the KZN Cerebral Palsy Reunion School, and she sent us this picture from the summit.

For those of you who might be contemplating a bit of mountaineering, we wouldn’t be quick to recommend Kilimanjaro. If you’ve never tried the Comrades, it’s worth remembering that it’s the most arduous marathon in the world, yet Lin claims the trip to the top of Kilimanjaro makes the Comrades look like kindergarten. So, if your game is just a standard marathon, remember, you’ll have to work twice as hard before contemplating it.

Well done Lin, not only for summiting, but for the worthy cause you did it for.
