New Personal Best In Ultimate Challenge

Violence and aggression trainer Bryan Grome clocked up a new personal best in the 55k Dunoon Ultra Marathon, crossing the finishing line in 6hrs, 38mins and 8secs. His time saw him placed 66th out of a field of 200 runners.

The course took him through Pukks Glen then around Loch Eck before coming down through the hills and back into Dunoon, running along the shoreline to finish at the pier.

Bryan said the sunshine made it a great day for running but more importantly he raised more than £200 for NHS Forth Valley’s Dementia Activity Fund to buy equipment for people with dementia to help them cope better during their time in hospital. He explained: “Being admitted to hospital is a traumatic experience most times but for someone with a cognitive impairment it can be even more difficult and cause confusion and distress. By having activities to help the person and their family it is hoped to make this experience as positive as possible.”
