A father and son from Sheffield joined hundreds in a tough endurance event.

Rob Borhill and his son Aidan, aged 28, were among a record number of people who competed in this year’s Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon in Scotland.

They had to swim to the north shore of Loch Tay, run or walk seven mountains, kayak seven miles and cycle 34 miles to the finish line – completing the course in just under 14 hours.

Rob, 56, from Ecclesall, said: “It was one of the toughest days of our lives, but the stunning views and our unbreakable team spirit got us through in the end.”

The event supported two charities – Mercy Corps, which works to improve the lives of those living in the city slums in Indonesia, and also Mary’s Meals, which works to feed 755,000 children in schools around the world.
