Conquering the Cape Wrath Ultra: A Diabetic Runner's Journey

As the dawn of 2024 unfolds, I find myself standing at the threshold of another extraordinary challenge – the Cape Wrath Ultra race which will take place from the 19th to the 26th May, 2024.

This gruelling multi-stage race, set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Scottish Highlands, beckons adventurers and athletes from around the world. However, my journey carries an additional layer of complexity, one that I’ve embraced wholeheartedly: the mission to raise awareness about living and running with type 1 diabetes.
