Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I intend to run the West Highland Way (WHW) in the Summer of 2019 in three consecutive days, finishing at Fort William just after climbing Ben Nevis. The WHW stretches 96 miles (154 Km) from Milngavie to Fort William, and it is "normally" completed from South to North, the thinking behind this being the southern stages are easier and will prepare "hikers" for the more demanding northern stages. I intend to run it with a friend.

Normal Hiking Distances

  • Milngavie to Drymen: 12 miles/19 km
  • Drymen to Rowardennan: 14 miles/22.5 km
  • Rowardennan to Inverarnan: 14 miles/22.5 km
  • Inverarnan to Tyndrum: 12 miles/19.5 km
  • Tyndrum to Inveroran: 9 miles/14.5 km
  • Inveroran to Kingshouse : 10 miles/16 km
  • Kingshouse to Kinlochleven: 9 miles/ 14.5 km
  • Kinlochleven to Fort William: 16 miles/24 km

We plan to do it in three days:

  • Milngavie – Rowardennan, 44km and 1200m elevation.
  • Rowardennan – Bridge of Orchy, 52km and 1500m elevation.
  • Bridge of Orchy – Fort William, 58km et 3000m elevation. 

The company I proudly work for values the importance of advancing education and promoting excellence in the care and welfare of animals, especially those used in the science. It is for that reason that I have started this fund raising project, and would like to raise money for The Animals in Science Education Trust (AS-ET) in the UK.

AS-ET has distributed nearly £100,000 in grants to support education and welfare activities. The bulk of the grants are in the form of bursaries to enable individuals to attend courses to improve their own knowledge and skills. These courses range from specialist short courses to long formal courses such as those leading to the IAT further and higher education qualifications.

AS-ET has also made grants to support research projects, the development and provision of short courses and educational meetings.
