Burnham-On-Sea fundraiser completes 105-mile challenge for charity

A Burnham-On-Sea fundraiser has completed a gruelling 105-mile race across the Scottish Highlands to raise money for a local charity.

Jane 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.

She 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.

The 105-mile race takes place between Nairn and Glen Coe and includes running, cycling and Kayaking.

Jane told "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!"

"But things can change pretty quickly and the Highland weather was pretty unrelenting on the second day - it’s amazing how much the weather can impact a race like this."

"I 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!"

"The 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! I’m over the moon - it’s well below the average 14 hours."

"I 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 cause."

A Secret World spokesperson thanked Jane for her "greatly appreciated" fundraising efforts.
