Peter all kit­ted out in Antarc­tic gear

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

Rat­tray run­ner Peter Ritchie ran three races on New Year’s Day wear­ing the gear he wore to com­plete an in­cred­i­ble sub-zero marathon 300 miles from the South Pole in Novem­ber.

Peter - who brought the Rat­tray and Blair­gowrie half marathon back to the town ear­lier this year - took part in runs in Perth, Dundee and Blair­gowrie’s very own New Year’s Day Fun Run and Walk on Mon­day in all the kit, which had been lent to him by An­drew Mur­ray, a for­mer win­ner of the An­tar­tica Marathon.

He was rais­ing aware­ness of his fundrais­ing ef­forts for Perth Autism Sup­port, which so far has seen him raise over £4130 for the char­ity.

The Perth and Kin­ross Coun­cil em­ployee said that there is still time to do­nate to Perth Autism Sup­port through his Just­Giv­ing page which is open un­til the week­end.

And he also thanked ev­ery­one who had do­nated so gen­er­ously al­ready.

Speak­ing at the New Year’s Day Fun Run in Blair­gowrie, Peter said:“I would like to say a big thank you to ev­ery­one who has do­nated so far, it’s been bril­liant.”

•If you would like to do­nate go to Just Giv­ing and search for Peter Ritchie Antarc­tic Ice Marathon Perth Autism Sup­port.
