ECRAD Long Run – Day 2

Day 2 - Rowardennan to Bridge of Orchy

What would the running team meet on Day 2. 

This stage is the longest at approx 35 miles and expected to last over 10 hours.

The midgies helped spur the team to a great start and chased them out of Rowardennan.

The day started off overcast but brightened up and turned into a spectacular Scottish summer day.
Day 2 was spent in warm sun, blue skies and no breeze.  

The support team today was Elaine, Jennifer , Jamie and Kenneth and all did a great job of supporting Sue through this challenging day.

 

Elaine covered the first stage to Beinn Glass with fantastic views of Loch Lomond. Jennifer then took up the hilly section up past Crianlarich.  Jamie and Kenneth ( on mountain bike ) then joined Sue for over the top section following the railway line down to Bridge of Orchy.

The traditional finish was followed by dipping tired legs in the cooling water of River Orchy much to the amusement of campers on the West Highland Way trail.
