Santa Fun Run and Walk Spectacular - Haddo Country Park,
6 December 2009
In conjunction with The Running Shop, Aberdeen, Oldmeldrum Rotary Club again organised a very successful 5 Km Fun Run and / or Walk Spectacular on Sunday 6th December 2009, in the grounds of Haddo House Country Park. This year, we also had a shorter run for the kids (9 years and under)
It had been very wet the previous night, and it was still a bit drizzly in the early motning. However, by 11am. it was dry and sunny. Despite there being another Santa Run organised on the same day in Aberdeen, some 70 odd competitiors braved the conditions and took part on the day. This year we had more walkers than runners, and all seemed to enjoy their run or walk in the park, and a good sum (money still coming in) was raised for PolioPlus and other charities nominated by the competitors.
Below are the results:-
1st Runner - Dave Scott - 18 Mins 39 Sec
2nd Runner - Nathan Ferguson - 18 Mins 50 Sec
3rd Runner - John Bonner - 19Mins 23Sec
1st Walker - Bebhinn Paterson
2nd Walker - Daisy Graham
3rd Walker - Ashleigh Grant
1st Child - Findlay Burgess - 12 Mins 9 Sec
2nd Child - Leon Petrie - 12 Mins 10 sec
3rd Child - James Blackadder - 19 mins 23Sec
Excellent fun was had by all, dogs in Santa Suits, mince pies and mulled wine, with Christmas Trees as prizes.
Our thanks to Haddo House and all our Sponsors for making this a successful event that can only grow in years to come.
