Saturday 6th July saw the running of The Great Glencoe Challenge, and DK were represented in the form of Chris Platts.

For some time now he has wanted to run a marathon, so which one do you choose?

Well never wanting an easy way out he went for “The Great Glencoe Challenge”. 

The route starts in Glencoe at the Clachaig Inn, up and over the infamous Devils Staircase on the West Highland Way, down through Kinlochleven and onto the finish in the beautiful Glen Nevis at Fort William.

26.2 miles and over 5000ft of climb.
