Caroline finishes the West Highland Way

We are delighted to report the news that our Donor Development Manager, Caroline McKay, has become the first woman to run the West Highland Way in one go during mid-Winter.

This is a quite astonishing achievement. Running from the famous Fort William to Milngavie continuously for 25 hours, Caroline covered over 95 miles of tough terrain, including steep climbs and rocky paths. Beginning at a few minutes after 9pm, a large majority of Caroline’s run was under the cover of darkness, it was only when she reached the 55-mile point that the sun had risen!
