Those who like to put on their walking boots
and climb Munros may be pleased to learn that the organisation running the Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon in Perthshire has made a donation to the National Trust For Scotland to help repair footpaths on the mountains included in the route.
A sum of £2,000 has been donated to the trust for this purpose by the Artemis Charitable Foundation, which organised the event in July around the Ben Lawers nature reserve, reports Grough.
Participants had to put on running shoes
and ascend the seven Munros in the range, the highest of which is Ben Lawers itself at 3,982 ft.
They also had to cycle round Loch Tay, as well as swimming in and kayaking on the 24-mile long body of water.
Property manager at the trust Helen Cole said: "This donation from the Artemis Foundation is very welcome and will be put to good use, ensuring that the well worn footpaths on the nature reserve are properly maintained."
The foundation has opened registration for the 2012 edition of the race, which will take place on July 14th.
