Paediatric Physiotherapist Conquers the West Highland Way AGAIN

Friday, August 17, 2018

An advanced specialist paediatric physiotherapist, who provides support to children across Glasgow, has broken her previous record for completing the West Highland Way Race. 

Lorna Sinclair has already underwent the gruelling West Highland Way Race which is one of the world’s longest established ultra-marathons, with competitors having 35 hours to run 95 miles from Milngavie train station to Fort William along the West Highland Way. 

This time she smashed her previous record by two hours, completing in 23 hours and 51 minutes with a 1am start and 95 miles covered. 

 Lorna said: “I’ve been running marathons for over 15 years and started ultra distance trail running (distances longer than marathons which are off road) eight years ago. There’s a strong friendly network across the Scottish ultra marathon scene with races up and down the country all year round.  

“I’m lucky as the West Highland Way is on my doorstep – people travel from all over the world to do the race and I really love the route as the terrain and views are so variable along the whole course. 

“ It’s been three years since I last ran the West Highland Way Race so I was really chuffed to beat my previous time and I also felt much better at the end than last time. I was so elated I was drinking celebratory fizz with friends less than an hour after finishing! 

“Finishers receive an engraved crystal goblet, so I now have two... think I would maybe like another two (or three or four) while I am fortunate enough with my health and wellbeing to enjoy such a crazy hobby!”
