Now Chair is in the Cheviots!

Gosh he gets around! This weekend Harriers' chairman, Bob Keast, was up in the Cheviot hills taking part in the RAB mountain marathon. For most of us mere mortals running a 32 mile event just 3 weeks ago would be enough to put us off anything containing the word "marathon" for months to come, but not Chair. Always up for a mountain challenge he and his tent were cantering across the hills that border Scotland in a bid to bag as many checkpoints in the time limit across the 2 days as possible. With mountain marathons you not only have to haul yourself across some very challenging terrain but also all your gear that you need to set up overnight camp, which, on this occasion, was done in freezing temperatures as Bob awoke to a frost covered tent! He describes the terrain as not the most inspiring that he has ever encountered but he still enjoyed his two days up on the English-Scottish border, as this photo shows!
