Fun Run info

Family Fun Run

If you fancy something a little shorter than a 10km, and something that the kids could run with you then why not enter the Family Fun Run. It's 3km and in the sheltered paths of Lochend Woods. We had a good turn out for this last year and lots of positive feedback. Spread the word and just turn up and enter on the day.
