St Albans man’s monster trek around Loch Ness

A TICKET inspector at St Albans Station completed a gruelling 120km solo-trek around Loch Ness to raise money for the Royal British Legion last weekend.

Lee Webb completed the First Iron Monster duathlon in 10 hours and 38 minutes, starting in Inverness and following the Great Glen Way along the north side of Loch Ness. The gruelling event consisted of eight stages – four involved running a combined distance of 40k and four involved cycling a distance of 80k.

Lee, who has raised �350 so far, said: “I have never pushed myself like this before, both p–hysically and mentally, as I did doing this. It was the toughest one day event I have ever participated in.

“The Royal British Legion is such an important charity, providing the ever needed assistance to ex-Service personnel and their families, and I am proud to have been able to support them.”
