Over 400 runners joined Chapelton’s running event, helping to raise £4,000 for local North East charities.
The event, on Sunday 14 July 2019, saw people of all ages go head-to-head in a 10K race and shorter kids' fun run before enjoying an afternoon of entertainment and much needed food and drink from local outlets.
Sponsored by Hall Morrice, WM Donald and Brio Retirement Living, the day raised funds for causes such as Muchalls and Newtonhill Scout Group, Chapelton Baby and Toddler Group, Friends of Newtonhill School, Newtonhill Pipe Band, Pillar Kincardineshire, Police Scotland Youth Volunteers and Portlethen and Districe Voluntary Community Ambulance Association.
Speaking of the event, which is now in its second year, The Duchess of Fife, Director of Elsick Development Company which is leading the build of Chapelton, commented, "Community really is at the heart of Chapelton and its events such as the run which remind us of the great things that community can do. It was great to see so many people, of all ages and abilities, turn out for an amazing day and to help raise money for local charities and organisations.
"I would like to thank everyone who helped organise the event, took part or volunteered in making this an exciting, memorable and worthy day."
The 10k race and fun run is part of a calendar of events taking in place in Chapelton this summer, including a farmers' market on 21 July, a drinks tasting on 9 August, the annual bike and 5K walk on 1 September and a scarecrow festival throughout August.
