Event 24 – 9th November 2019

The second run of November, our 24th at Polkemmet was a frosty one, with some low temperatures enticing both our runners and volunteers into wrapping up!

Following on from last week, our frequent flyer volunteers Gillian and Michael were repping there 25 Club shirts proudly!


With the weekend being of remembrance across the world, we are proud to say that our event was chosen by some of our regular runners; Kirsty, Katie and Oliver as the location of their Poppy Run on behalf of the Royal British Legion


The Run Director this week was Fraser Lawson who was was directing his first event, after being a regular volunteer and core team member for a number of months.

Every week we rely on our volunteers to ensure the safety and smooth running of the event and offer full instruction & support for the role. If you want to help as a volunteer then have a look at our future volunteer roster
