Angus Alston


My name is Angus Alston, I am from Glasgow,  53 years old, married with 3 children . I love the Scottish outdoors and took up running about 10 years ago. After a few years of pounding the tarmac I  realised trail running was what I loved.

Ultra History

I have run the Fling twice, The Devil, Glen Olgle, 3 peaks, Dunoon, plus a few other

Why WHW Race?

When I first  heard about the WHW Race  I was simply astounded that this was even possible and had huge admiration for anyone who could undertake this task. Gradually though I’ve began to realise that, through reaching each of my longest distance goals (10k, half, to marathon, to ultra) that with some training and a  positive mind-set you are capable of much, much more than you would ever at first believe .

I live 10 mins walk from the start of the race  and adore The Way…. For me it’s top of my bucket list.

Aim for the race?

To complete of within time limit, that’s all.  Hopefully though around 30 hours.
