What happens when a determined ultra-marathon runner meets one of the toughest and most challenging long-distance races in the UK?
He gets a four-berth Carado T447 to help him on his way.
Keith Robins runs The West Highland Way Race
Keith Robins from Stafford will be taking part in the 95-mile West Highland Way Race this coming weekend and along with his trusted crew and support from his friends and family, he will also have the provision of one of the most trusted and reliable motorhomes available, the Carado, loaned by Travelworld’s Rent Easy team.
With great build quality, large beds for all the crew after an energetic day on the road and ample space for equipment, there is no better travelling companion!
The Carado will take Keith and the team up to the start of the race in Milngavie, Glasgow and through the checkpoints up to Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.
Known as one of the long-established and challenging ultra-marathons, the West Highland Way Race and Keith are no strangers.
Keith previously ran the race in a very commendable 32.5 hours, but this time, he is determined to beat his previous time and complete the race in under 30 hours.
