Keith Ross, our newly promoted photocopier branch service director in Aberdeen turned 50 this year. He always promised himself that he would run a special race to raise money for charity.
Keith says he didn’t think it would be this special! He will be running 3 races; the Balmoral 15 mile trail race, the Great North Run and finishing with something very special in November, the Nepal International Marathon! As if this wasn’t enough, Keith has also added in another 5 runs which include the Baker Hughes 10k in Aberdeen, Great Scottish Summer 10k in Edinburgh, Half Dram Marathon in Dundee, Touch of Tartan Half Marathon in Perth and the Aviemore Half Marathon!! At the time of this press release, Keith has decided to have some time off in December!
Keith has already completed the Balmoral Glacier Energy 15 Mile Trail Race finishing in 2 hours 31 minutes.
Keith will be raising money for 2 charities; Alzheimer Scotland and a local charity in Nepal that focuses on gender equality and empowerment of women and girls. Everything from lack of education to woman trafficking is still an issue.
Also as part of the trip to Nepal in the week leading up to the marathon Keith will be, along with his fellow runners aiming to rebuild a school that was destroyed during the devastating 2015 earthquakes. As you will all agree running a marathon at 2,300 meters is definitely special! Any donation you can make will be greatly appreciated. Keith will keep us all up to date on how he gets on at the various stages of his challenge throughout the year.
