Following my previous blog I thought I would give you an update on the Yomp. We had 3 teams entered into the Cateran Yomp which took place Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th June. The teams were:-
The All (black) adders – Simon Allison, Jack Boyle, Campbell Clark, Cheryl Hogg and Andrew Wallace
Blackadders 1 - Lindsay Darroch, Jacqueline Guthrie, Sara Mattew and Debbie Reekie
The Legal Beagles – Petra Grunenberg, Hazel Anderson, Judith Dryden, Emma Gray and Stuart King
This year we had two team members who managed to achieve Gold – completing all 54 miles – Simon and Andrew. They set off at 07.15 on Saturday morning and finally crossed the finishing line at 05.44 Sunday morning, an amazing 22hrs 27mins 52secs.
There were a large number of team members who set out to conquer the Silver challenge - 36 miles – those achieving this did so in times ranging from 14hrs 38mins – 17hrs 38mins.
There were also some novice walkers who took on Bronze – a full on 22 miles taking 10hrs 6 mins.
I am sure you will all agree, no small undertaking by anyone, many congratulations to every single one who took part, you did a great job. Many hours of training, very many blisters burst (Compeed sales have gone through the roof), very tired legs but the most fantastic team spirit.
In total, the team members have raised funds in excess of £5,000 which go towards The Soldiers’ Charity.
Well done everyone who took part in another great event!Lindsay Darroch
