Fun Run and Walk Spectacular - Haddo Country Park,
7 December 2008
In conjunction with The Running Shop, Aberdeen, Oldmeldrum Rotary Club organised a very successful 5 Km Fun Run and / or Walk Spectacular on Sunday 7th December 2008, in the grounds of Haddo Country Park.
It had been very cold the previous night, and it was still icy in places on the route, but some 70 odd competitiors braved the conditions and took part on the day. All seemed to enjoy their run or walk in the park, and well over £4000 was raised for PolioPlus and other charities nominated by the competitors.
Below are the results:-
1st Runner - Dave Scott - 18mins, 22secs
2nd Runner - Veronique Oldham - 18mins, 23secs
3rd Runner - Ian Diack - 19 MIns, 51 Secs
1st Walker - Katherine Horsell - 48 Mins, 16Secs
2nd Walker - Helen Basford - 48 Mins, 17 Secs
3rd Walker - Michelle McCombie - 48 Mins, 18 Secs
First Child - Chris Barkley - 29 Mins, 27 Secs
Excellent fun was had by all, dogs in Santa Suits, mince pies and mulled wine, with Christmas Trees as prizes.
Congratulations to Stuart Sutherland on raising £1000, which will be split between CLIC Sargent and the Rotary's nominated charity, PolioPlus, and also on completing his first ever 5K Run in 23 Mins, 53 Secs.
Our thanks to Haddo House and all our Sponsors for making this a successful event that can only grow in years to come.
