ECRAD Long Run – Day 1

Day 1 - Milngavie to Rowardennan

The ECRAD Long Run gets under way from Milngavie at the start of the West Highland Way.

Only 170 odd miles to go for Sue.

Accompanying Sue from the start, Scott, the minister of Maxwell Mearns Castle Church chose two wheels as his mode of travel – maybe to keep up with Sue.

Sue will be accompanied by many friends along the way lending their support and encouragement at each stage and hopefully enjoying their part of the run.

Sandra and Seona joined Sue on Day 1 with Mark and Lynsey lending further support from Balmaha. 


Day 1 was very humid but with beautiful views from Conic Hill.  Challenging inclines and really fun downhill sections.

Of course when out in the open country side around summer time, the midgies might not be friendly but on Day 1 they were not too bad.

A well-deserved paddle rounded off Day 1 and the first day marathon ( and a little bit more ) is complete.
