Atkinson Bolton to take part in Invesco Perpetual Highland Endurance Race

On 17 September James Bolton, Simon Gibson, David Thurlow, Ian Hubbard, Will Sutton and Dick Boughen of Newmarket based firm Atkinson Bolton Consulting will be heading to Scotland to take part in the Invesco Perpetual Highland Endurance Race in aid of The Mitchemp Trust. 

Over 24 hours from 18th to 19th September they will travel from the East coast to the West coast of Scotland from sea to sea via the length of the Caledonian Canal including Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy and travel the full length of the Great Glen.  They will do this in sections with bikes, canoes and on foot over 100km, over 5000ft of ascent across 2 days.  They have been in training now for a few months and one of the team members is there specifically to follow along in a support vehicle to provide dry clothes, food and water.  It’s all for a great cause and they are hoping to raise £4,000 (or more). 

Please visit their Just Giving page at or pop in to their offices in Fordham Road, Newmarket to fill in their sponsorship form!
