The date for the 7th annual Round Spiggie Fun Run and Walk has been announced by the Mind Your Head team.

Scheduled to take place on Sunday 19 August 2012 the fun run and walk will follow the same route as in previous years - starting at the Dunrossness Sports Field heading in a clockwise direction around Spiggie Loch back to the Sports Field. Participants can choose a 5k or 10k route.

Jenny Teale, Co-ordinator said "The fun run is a fantastic awareness raising event. For us, it's all about getting folk together to enjoy a fun activity and think about mental health. We hope that once again this year we can attract people with all levels of fitness and that we can all work together to promote mental health positively throughout Shetland."

"Last year the fun run was sponsored by Shetland Catch and GB Design Services which was a great support and we hope to secure a sponsor for the event again this year."

As in previous years there will be Sunday teas and children's activities held in the Dunrossness Public Hall. This year the Shetland Rugby Club are supporting Mind Your Head by organising the Sunday teas.
