Below is an event invitation, which we attended last year. It is a good experience event as Fiona will testify to that. It is a long way to travel for the race but an experience that you will not encounter here in Campbeltown.
They are a very friendly bunch and Debbie that runs the event is very helpful. It will be good for all that are in this age bracket and not any younger.
One could include it in a weekend up in Glasgow.
