Wester Hailes Fun Run 2015 took place yesterday, Sunday 14 June, and though the sun may not have been shining plenty of people came along to run, cheer and have a great time!
There was a celebration before the event where the Lord Provost Donald Wilson presented an award to Ellie Campbell who had won the design a Fun Run Poster competition.
The Fun Run, the fourth since it was brought back due to interest in older photos, saw participants run or walk a 5km route around Wester Hailes. Starting from WHEC the route runs along the canal, over the bridge towards Dumbryden before looping and heading up to Clovenstone and then back along the canal to WHEC. Over one hundred people endured the chilly weather to take part.
After a warm up which involved a lot of dancing and stretching they were off!
There was a short awards presentation after for the following:
Race winner – Paul Wilkes
First female runner – Audrey Duff
First boy under fourteen – Samuel Quarley
First Girl under fourteen – Casey Allen
