Glenlivet was a wonderful location for a 10k the scenery as you will see in photographs was amazing. The "slight inclines" were a bit challenging to say the least, and temperature of 20c made it a tough run, but it was a great event and we do it again. Everyone did great and we had a really enjoyable day!! Thanks to our van driver Stuart Robertson Mr Whippy as he is now known for chauffeuring us up. If you look at that very last photograph you will understand why he now has that title. How he won the Charity Weight Loss Challenge last year i will never know!!
