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.
