WIIGA 5k fundraiser ready to roll

FUNDRAISING for the Natwest Island Games is kicking up a notch with a much anticipated 5k run taking place this Saturday in the Lews Castle Grounds.

The 5k fundraiser takes entrants from the Lews Castle Green, up around the college, hooks around Strawberry Hill before weaving around the Creed and back along the shore road to the Castle Green again.

But the race isn’t just for the deadly competitive runners with organisers urging everyone to get involved as the route can be walked, with either a pram or a dog.

Primary Age Children must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.

There will be a prize for the first male and first female to finish the course.

Forms should be returned to the Sports Centre by Friday, February 3.
