The runnersScott Elsey and Jordan Jenkins battled through the hilly Loch Ness Marathon on September 28th and collected more than £2000 in the process.

The course is notorious for its gruelling miles of uphill road towards the end of which runs along one side of the famous Scottish loch and into Inverness. The two runners were well placed in a field of more than 2500 and finished in a highly creditable time of 4 hours 52 minutes.

“Even with all the months of training that was one hell of tough race,” said Jordan. “Luckily we had some of the most magnificent scenery to distract us at least some of the time.”

Scott added: “It was hard going up miles of hills but the generous support of our friends and family donating so much money for the school made it worthwhile and we would really like to thank them.”
