Run round Mull raises £3,500

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

A WO­MAN from Mull has raised £ 3,500 by run­ning round the is­land in five days.

Roz Mathews com­pleted the 87-mile route in or­der to raise money for the Der­vaig Sports Pitch.

She started the jour­ney at Der­vaig Pri­mary School, where school chil­dren ac­com­pa­nied her on the first mile of the run.

Each day Roz was joined by lo­cal run­ners as well as cy­clists, some on push bikes and some on elec­tric bikes.

On the fi­nal leg of the jour­ney, Roz was greeted by a bunch of sheep that bore the mes­sage ‘Run Roz’ on their fleeces.

At the end of run, Roz said: ‘ Well that’s it... I did it. I ran ev­ery step and thor­oughly en­joyed ev­ery day.

‘Thank you so much to every­one who joined me and sup­ported me on foot and wheels, with­out you all it wouldn’t have been nearly as en­joy­able or en­ter­tain­ing. It’s been just bril­liant and the sup­port has been over­whelm­ing.’

Roz Matthew re­ceived a cake at the end of her run round Mull.
