Fundraisers put to test

Have your say

HUNDREDS of contenders pitted themselves against a Krypton Factor-style obstacle course in aid of the Sick Kids Friends Foundation.

Run by Buccleuch Property, the lung-bursting fundraiser was held at the Duke of Buccleuch’s Drumlanrig Castle and Queensberry Estate and netted almost £8000 for the charity.

The entrants endured a six-hour test of mental and physical endurance, split into three stages of running, mountain biking and orienteering.
