How to Run 100 Miles in Seven Days – Day 6 (Iain)

Run 6 complete – 11.7 miles. Only 8.8 miles to go! Single figures. Wooohoooo!

Sron Ulladale is the biggest inland cliff in the UK other than Cliff Richard.

Despite living on the island I’d never hear of the cliff until I saw a BBC show called The Great Climb Live. A five and a half hour live climbing marathon showing two climbers will attempting to climb it. The climb is tricky becasue the cliff is an overhang.

After watching the show I went down to Harris to see the cliff. It was so spectacular that I vowed to come back. That was 2010. It is now 2020. I thought I’d be back sooner but better late than never.

The weather looked bad on the drive down to Harris but I was hopeful it would clear as the morning progressed. Luckily the sun came out and I got some spectacular views on the run.

I didn’t see anyone on my run but I did hear seer stags bellowing in the valley. I thing their loud groaning is their way of saying “anyone fancy a shag?”

I ended my run with a nice dip in the sea.

I look forward to finishing but what should I do for my last run?
