Eddie Rodger put in a brave and battling effort in his attempt to complete the 95 mile West Highland Way ultra marathon on Saturday.  Starting at 1am in the morning, Rodger took part in the one of the toughest ultra’s in the UK, having not only having to overcome the very testing terrain, but torrential rain and biting overnight wind.  Unfortunately after having 2 nasty falls out on the course, Rodger had to take the difficult decision to withdraw at the 60 mile mark.
