Kenny Paterson Three Peaks Ultra Marathon

Kenny Paterson had never run further than five kilometres before starting training for the Three Peaks Ultra Marathon, a new 38 mile race over the iconic Eildon Hills. However, the 27-year-old's five months of training paid off in October, as he completed the course in 7 hours 44 minutes 53 seconds to come home 34th out of a field of 86. As a result of his efforts, The Southern Reporter journalist raised £296 for the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust. Kenny said: "When I was challenged to take on the Borders' first ultra marathon back in May, I thought it was a wind up. "But when I got my head around how far the race was and actually began training, I was determined to go through with it for myself , the people who backed me with sponsorship and the trust. "The course was really muddy which made the Eildon's all the tougher, but it was a great feeling crossing the finish line."
