Heather Russo takes on The Rat Race

11:33 am

On September 8 and 9 our very own Heather Russo will be putting herself through one of the toughest fitness challenges to raise funds for Enthusiasm – The Rat Race

Set in the Scottish Highlands, she will set off on foot, on bike and by kayak to compete the gruelling 105-mile coast-to-coast event.

Taking place over two days the race takes in the shores of Loch Ness, the grounds of Cawdor Castle, and the challenging terrain of Glen Nevis and Glen Coe.

Day one will see Heather carry out a seven-mile trek/run, a 48 mile bike ride and then a one mile run/kayak.

Day two begins with 21 miles-off road cycling, 13 miles on-road cycling and then a 14 mile trek/run and a one mile kayak to the finish line.

Heather said: “As always I want to raise money for the charity I hold dear to my heart and help disadvantaged young people.”

“We will be setting up a donation page next month, as part of our Big Give week, which we’ll be announcing on October 3 – as we have had an amazing offer from Dulverton trust, to double monies raised then.”
