fundraiser completes 105-mile challenge for charity
Burnham-On-Sea fundraiser has completed a gruelling 105-mile race
across the Scottish Highlands to raise money for a local charity.
Lambert, a senior instructor at Burnham-On-Sea's Tae Kwon-Do club,
headed up to Scotland this week to take part in the challenge in
aid of East Huntspill charity Secret World Wildlife Rescue.
has just returned from a 1,200 mile round trip to the Scottish Highlands
where she took part in the adventure race called Coast to Coast.
105-mile race takes place between Nairn and Glen Coe and includes
running, cycling and Kayaking.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "On the first day, the weather was
perfect for racing and I finished in just five hours. The sun was
shining, everyone was smiling and I felt great!"
things can change pretty quickly and the Highland weather was pretty
unrelenting on the second day - its amazing how much the weather
can impact a race like this."
have to admit that the last four miles were pretty tough, and the
constant climb to over 1,600ft was challenging but I made it, and
I had enough in the tank for a sprint to the finish line!"
provisional result indicated that I was the 18th woman to cross
the finish line with a total time of 11 hours and 40 minutes, which
is fantastic! Im over the moon - its well below the
average 14 hours."
would like to say a massive thank you to my support crew and to
everyone who sponsored me and raised £1,500 for a very worthy
