Caithness Man to Compete in Amazon Forest Charity Challenge

This week’s Caithness Courier reports on local man, Kenny Paterson and his plans to compete in a week-long survival and 200 km trek in the Amazon Basin.

No confirmation of which event is given, but it tallies with the Jungle Marathon which runs between 7 and 16 October across a 222 km stretch of terrain.  Competitors are required to be self-sufficient, although bottled water and designated campsites will be provided.

Paterson is raising money for local MS centres and, from the looks of the course, every penny will be well-raised.
