Fund-rais­ing triath­lete

Strathearn Herald - - PROPERTY -

A big-hearted Strat­hearn woman has swum, biked and run nearly 2000 miles across Tay­side ahead of a race to raise funds for her can­cer-stricken cousin.

Auchter­arder phys­io­ther­a­pist Fiona Ma­clean, 43, has also been at­tacked by a swan, dodged jel­ly­fish and lost a train­ing shoe to a boggy marsh while train­ing for this week­end’s Ben Ne­vis Brave­heart Triathlon.

Named the UK’s‘tough­est triathlon’ the race com­prises a 1.2 mile loch swim, 56 mile bike ride and a 13 mile run up and down Bri­tain’s high­est moun­tain.

Fiona is tak­ing on the ex­treme chal­lenge to raise vi­tal funds for her beloved Scot­tish cousin Julie Strel­leyJones, 45, who has in­cur­able sec­ondary breast can­cer.
