Le Jog completed!

Well, I finally reached my goal on Saturday morning at 9.30am. John O'Groats was basking in late summer sunshine and I could clearly see the Orkney Islands.

I covered a total distance of 1033 miles in seventeen days, averaging 60 miles per day. The route was mainly on 'B' roads and other minor roads. I stayed at B&B's each evening and made good use of the local tourist boards in the areas that I passed through to get accommodation.

I am very grateful to all those people who assisted me in this venture and I am now in the process of collecting in my sponsor money which will go to Macmillan Cancer Support in Oxfordshire. It is still not too late to donate at The Pharmacy if you have not done so!! Thank you again to all those who have already given so generously.

Ian Grierson.
