Winning the first duo (pair) category, we were better prepared for the Coast-to-Coast event that takes in some of the most mysterious and wild locations in Scotland.
We ran, cycled and kayak non-stop past the historic Cawdor Castle, the legendary Loch Ness and the mountainous Glen Nevis and Glen Coe.
This included battling the unforgiving Highland terrain and Scottish weather! However, with what we know now, we definitely could have prepared differently – more strength and conditioning and definitely might have taken running poles for the down hills.
We were still severely ‘sore’ for days after the race – but inspired for more.
