Forest Sprint @ Scolty 25/4/16

It’s never to late to come along and join in the fun for the Forest Sprint Series – although best 4 of 6 scores count towards the final score you don’t have to attend all 6. So even if you missed the first two come along to Scolty and get the old legs and brain working overtime on a short, sharp dash around a 3km course.

You’re also more than welcome to come along and treat it as a lovely evening walk to get some fresh air and exercise of course.
Bring the dog, bring a friend, bring the family.

See you there?

Scotland is still suffering outbreaks of tree diseases and we can do our bit to help stop the spread and also continue good working relationships with landowners whose land we use by following the guidelines given here.
