A few days ago I discovered there is a race over the West Highland Way each June. The route is 95 miles long and starts from Milngavie and finishes at Fort William.
Next year (2007) the race starts at 1am 23 June and competitors have 35 hours to walk/jog/run the route. There are 8 check points along the way.
I am 47 and run regularly – aiming for 1,000 miles a year and I also really enjoy hill walking. I have done a couple of long distance runs/walks and so I have decided to enter the WHW race.
I thought I’d set up this blog to record my progress. The race is 8 months away. I will try and find a countdown clock to see how much time I have exactly!!
