A fitness fan is getting ready to run through the night to help a group that looks after woodlands in Dunbar.

Taylor Carlile is taking on a gruelling challenge that will see him run four miles every four hours for 48 consecutive hours.

The 30-year-old stressed the importance of local outdoor areas in supporting the physical and mental health of people during lockdown and decided to try to raise £1,000 for the Dunbar Community Woodland Group, which manages Lochend Woods.

He said: “If I am going to put myself through something brutal and cause a bit of discomfort or pain, then somebody might as well get some benefit.

“I wanted to help somebody or raise awareness of something that might not have got it if I had not brought it to people’s attention.”

Mr Carlile, who runs Carlile Callisthenics and Fitness and also lives in Dunbar, is a regular visitor to the woodlands, in the Hallhill area of the town.

He said: “I use the woods quite a lot with the kids and, with lockdown and an inability to travel, you see a lot more people using it.
