Having just checked the entry list I see that there are only 4 places left on The Cateran Trail Ultramarathon, one of the absolute gems of the Scottish Ultra Marathon Series. For many, at 55 miles, it is the final long run of their pre West Highland Way Race training and this is the approach that I took last year. Unfortunately I managed to pick up an Achilles injury in the first 6 miles of the route but a combination of stubbornness and stupidity saw me grind out a finish! As a result, I didn’t actually get much running done before the West Highland Way Race, an enforced ‘taper’ of sorts.
Due to some great news and the logistics involved, I will unfortunately not be on the start line of the 2013 Cateran Trail Ultramarathon but will hopefully be back soon.
