Fraser finished in a time of 4:03:15, around two and a half minutes behind the women’s winner, Jill Stephen.

The 32-year-old has moved away from the United Kingdom, but decided to take part in the Highland Cross as she was back in the area for a few months.

Now living in Asia, the Cross course spanning from the west coast, through Glen Affrick to Beauly was a bit of a shock to the system.

“I’ve lived away for about eight years,” Fraser explained.

“I’m a PE teacher, so I’ve taught in Germany, Korea, Thailand, but I’m home for a few months in the summer because my little baby just turned one.

“So since I’m home for a while so I thought I may as well do a local event.

“I’ve only done triathlons in Asia, and it’s usually 30-something degrees. It was very different, much more scenic here.”
