Sim-ply does It
Chris runs West Highland Way twice
Chris Sim described his West Highland Way Double as: “A mixed bag of torture, joy, laughs and tears.
“I wanted to see how far I could push myself mentally and physically, and thought it would be a good fundraiser. I wanted to show that physical activity and the outdoors are essential for our mental health. Then in a moment of genius, I added Ben Nevis, bringing the journey to an even 200 miles!
“The last 12 miles lasted a lifetime. My knee had given up and blisters on my feet were bursting. So many incredible friends and family supported me along the way – they were at the end to greet me. If I wasn’t so exhausted, I would have looked full of elation.”
Chris finished just in time, with his second child being born later that same day. He’s fundraising for mental

Chris’s run took him across Rannoch Moor and past the icnoic peak of Buachaille Etive Mor (pictured).
