One runner is taking on a fantastic challenge running 100 miles through the Colorado Rockies. Dubbed 'Race Across The Sky', the Leadville Trail 100 will take Colin through one hundred miles of extreme Colorado Rockies terrain - from elevations of 9,200 to 12,600 feet! Colin has started a blog chronicling his training on the lead up to this epic challenge. You can keep up with all his training here: http://colinthornton.blogspot.fr/
It has been a fantastic year for the Happy Feet team raising over £70,000 to help Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland beat Scotland's biggest killers - thank you everyone who ran for us this year!
