And then there were 3... Day 3

The prospect of an additional half marathon on top of the 54.7 mile route has proven a step too far for Torkel today. He had run a marathon already when he reached the first checkpoint and decided to throw in the towel. His decision was helped along by some of the traffic that comes tearing around these roads, not slowest of which was a local police car!

So it’s a very sad goodbye to Torkel but at least now he can spend the rest of the day with us (maybe he wants to give it another ago I hear you cry?!) and enjoy the beautiful Loch Ness and its stunning surrounds…

At 2pm Mike came through Checkpoint 2. He is in high spirits in spite of his shins which are beginning to give him a little agro. On to Checkpoint 3 and the Dynamic Duo…
