Oliver Murdoch told his dad, Stuart, he was keen to help fund the crucial work Strathcarron Hospice during the coronavirus crisis.
Stuart, who is the hospice’s chaplain, watched on proudly as his nine-year-old son ran the equivalent of the 16 miles from his home to Strathcarron over 21 days.
Donations from friends and family spurred Oliver on to complete the required 1470 laps.
Stuart said: “He did 30 laps in the morning, 30 in the afternoon and ten at night.
“I can’t express how vital it is that people keep doing these events to support their local hospice.
“It has been hard, the fact that because of the restrictions put in place the lack of fundraising activities has impacted on the finances.
“These small activities have fundamentally helped the hospice and it has been good to see many people from different walks of life and of different ages doing imaginative things.”
