When Campbell Blair and Graham Baxter set Pitreavie members the challenge of virtually running, jogging and walking from Land’s End to John O’Groats in 4 days, they suspected this might ambitious.  As Campbell said, ‘Could we really expect our members to hit 817 miles in 4 days, 2 of which were working days?’

 

The response was overwhelming, and with 111 members of all ages participating, the initial target smashed by lunchtime on day 3.   The Club went on to add in a loop of the North Coast 500, with the aim of getting back to the Pitreavie Club House by the end of day 4.  Once again, this target was smashed, with the final mileage of 1390.32 miles ensuring members finished the challenge by running a virtual 220 laps of the Pitreavie track.

 

Campbell Blair added ‘This was never about who ran furthest or most often. It was about trying to create a challenge that everyone could get involved in and gave everyone a bit of extra encouragement in these testing times.’  One member commented, ‘It was a brilliant, motivating and fun event!’
