Having run 33 marathons for Children 1st (RSSPCC) from 1982-2003, I am now bowing to my advancing age (70 next year) by tackling the more leisurely Seven Hills of Edinburgh Challenge on Sunday 17 June - a mere 14.5 miles with 2,200 ft of climb - to raise funds for Scottish Sports Aid Trust.
SSAT is a charity that provides financial support to aspiring young Scottish athletes in the 12-22 age-group, including disability athletes, to help them get onto the ladder of success.
So, please sponsor me for this very good cause. Many thanks. Ronnie
STOP PRESS Have now completed the run in 3 hrs 26 mins, a little longer than planned due to the atrocious underfoot conditions that required numerous detours from the normal route, and lengthened my run to 15.5 miles. But one consolation was winning the prize for the oldest runner! (see pic 3 below).
