Alan Young wrote at the time, “Its been raining all morning. But hey it is what it is” (I think he may have been in the US so long he’d started to go native using a phrase like that… Being a good Scot you’d have thought he’d have said it was pishing down…)

Alan wrote of the piper at the race : "They always wanted to have one so with a Scotsman taking part and funds available they went for it Excellent quality walked around the course 4 times and generally did requests !!! Really good value and went down a storm"

William Sichel reached 3,100 Miles in 50 Days 15 hours 06 minutes and  04 seconds.

This will set a bunch of new records at the Scottish M60, Scottish Overall, British M60, British Overall and World M60 levels.

William has now run further in a single, measured race than any other Scot, any other British athlete, and/or anyone over the age of 60 – ever.

He has become the first Scot, the first Briton, the first person over the age of 60, and the oldest person ever to complete the 3,100 mile distance within the official time limit.

BUT while the race itself if officially over for William,apart from a brief pause for photos etc, he isn’t stopping just yet – he’s actually carrying on running for another 13 or so laps to reach the round figure of 5,000 km.

More updates & photos etc as I get them…
