Ken Laidlaw Sportif


Three weeks today we should be looking back on our achievements in the Border hills!  18 hardy souls are tackling the Ken Laidlaw Sportif – either 55 miles or 105 miles on a push bike!  I was out yesterday morning in the mist with the newest member of the team (David Lunn) for a gentle 40 mile training run.  And I will be out with the Edinburgh crew on Tuesday night too.

If you want to catch any of the action on Sunday 21st August then may I suggest the closest thing we have to Alpe D’Huez – The Swire, just outside Ettrickbridge between 10:15 and 11:15 (mile 22 on the map –

Katie has made it onto the front page of the newly published Brain Tumour magazine.  The International Brain Tumour Alliance asked if they could use the photo of Katie on the Three Brethern and we agreed.

There is a wee article inside on our walk to Three Brethern for IBTA walk around the world.  Plus the Trust is featured under support organisations.
