Mind Your Head
Mind Your Head would like to thank everybody who took part in the 2010 Round Spiggie Fun and Run Walk which took place on Sunday 8 August.
Around 500 participants, of all ages and ability, took part in the 5k and 10k route around Spiggie Loch in the South Mainland of Shetland. The weather was fantastic and added to the atmosphere throughout the day.
The Fun Run has now become a popular event in the summer calendar, most probably because it is a great day out for families and provides a challenging route for new and seasoned runners.
The MYH committee would like to thank Shetland Transport and Tay-CAD Ltd who sponsored the event. Thanks also to JA & GD Nicolson, Dunrossness Hall, Boddam Sports Pavilion, Shetland Farm Dairies, Ian Williamson and Arlene Bristow for their continued support of the event. Special thanks also to the Ness United Works League football team who undertook all the marshalling on the day - thanks guys!
Local sports photographer Kevin Jones has also kindly supplied us with all his photos from the day and can be viewed below. Electronic copies of all images can be purchased for £5 each with all proceeds going to the charity.
Along with the fun run itself, another important element of the day is the Sunday Teas and Children's Activities in the Hall. The Committee would like to thank all those who volunteered to work in the kitchen and all the bakers for providing such a wonderful spread. Also, special thanks to Louise Mouat and volunteers for providing activities for the bairns.
And finally, the MYH committee would like to thank all the runners and walkers who took part. Your continued support in the event will enable us to the charity forward and develop the charities aims and objectives.
It is anticipated that the event will have raised around £4,500.
