Portsoy’s triathlete Jodie Smith will be taking on an epic challenge all in aid of Portsoy Pool.

Jodi was brought up in Portsoy and remembers using the pool as a child and is a strong support of the charity in bringing back the much loved pool to the town.

Jodi’s Epic Route

Jodi has decided to help raise funds by taking on a challenge to cycle 500km in under 18 hours, leaving from the borders at Berwick-upon-Tweed and cycle along the east coast of Scotland up to Aberdeen, Peterhead and Fraserburgh and then along the coast ending at the pool in Portsoy.

The challenge will take place on the summer solstice this year. Jodi plans to leave as soon as daylight hits and hope to finish before sunset.
