The feedback was that the area is pretty rough underfoot so probably not the best for careering downhill, but no injuries and everyone managed to get back to the start. Apologies to Amber Graham who was the only one the end who I didn’t manage to get a time for as the Brikke reader was playing up.
Thanks to Pete Lawrence, Rachel Scott and David Esson for helping collect controls and Mrs Alexander at Cluny Crighton Farm for giving us permission to use the steading yard for parking.
Also thanks to everyone who bought a flapjack/muffin – another £10 raised for Antibiotic Research UK (ANTRUK), the world’s first charity to tackle antibiotic resistance. Their mission is to 1) develop new antibiotic therapies 2) educate the public and professionals about antibiotic resistance and 3) to provide patient support. They need to raise £0.5 million in the next year to do this.
Fiona will be running the Great Aberdeen Half Marathon this weekend with a team of colleagues from Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to raise money for ANTRUK. If you’d like to make any further donations or find out about the charity please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runbatemanrun
(Think of it as personal insurance against needing effective antibiotics to treat Lyme Disease! Rachel)
