Search & Rescue Dogs –Isle of Man (SARDA IOM) has entered into the 26 mile Snowdon Marathon to raise funds for the search and rescue dogs in Wales who assist with training and assessing search and rescue teams on the Isle of Man.
Taking on his latest challenge is SARDA IOM’s handler Jim MacGregor who will tackle the route dressed as the teams’ mascot, a collie dog. Previously the mascot (aka Jim) has completed the London Marathon and has taken part in the Isle of Man’s parish walk, walking 30 miles before retiring to the local watering hole.
This year, on Saturday 25th October, Jim will tackle the challenge to circumnavigate the 26 miles of Mount Snowdon in full mascot fancy dress.
Jim Macgregor comments “This time there will be the additional challenge of not only the hilly route but also I will be collecting donations in a bucket on the way round, so will be taking on some extra weight. Training has been going well although it will be very different conditions once I have the full dog suit on.’
Donations en route, along with sponsorship donations, will be given to SARDA Wales who have been instrumental in helping with training and assessments for SARDA IOM. This support is vital to SARDA IOM, and ensures an essential and free service to the local community.
