Scottish barefoot challenge certainly no walk in the park

Lanarkshire fitness instructor and Army veteran has completed a 96-mile walk barefooted across the West Highland Way in aid of Blesma. Craig Curtis admitted the challenge was the hardest he had ever faced.

The seven-day event resulted in Craig having to use crutches for large sections of the route, despite having spent several months preparing his feet for what he knew would be tough terrain.

After a couple of days my feet were getting ripped to shreds

“It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done; I was on crutches for two days and my whole body just shut down. There’s absolutely no way I would do that again!”

Craig raised more than £7,350 for the Association, which was presented to Outreach Officer Scotland Emma Gration and Members from Scotland at a veterans’ crafting hub.
