Get in the running for charity

RUNNERS are needed to help raise money for Action for Children Scotland by taking part in the Baxters Loch Ness marathon on September 30.

The route goes through one of Scotland’s most beautiful areas - along the loch’s south eastern shore, heading towards Dores and finishing in Inverness. The popular event was voted the fourth best marathon in the UK by Runner’s World, with runners travelling from across the world to take part.

The charity’s Scotland fundraiser, Hilary Canto, said: “The Loch Ness Marathon is one of the most popular events in the running calendar, allowing participants to keep active, raise sponsorship and enjoy a truly breathtaking setting.”

All money raised will help Action for Children provide a wide range of support to children and families across Scotland. To find out more please contact by telephone on 01463 717227 or email hilary.canto@actionforchildren.org.uk
