Mud loving runners are being urged to get dirty and put their backing behind a leading north-east charity. CLAN Cancer Support is the official local charity of the inaugural Mud Madness Aberdeen event which promises fun, mud and laughs for all the family with 3km and 5km courses to test all ability levels.
The fun event is being held on Saturday (October 24) at the Lochter Activity Centre and will include demanding natural obstacles and water-based challenges.
CLAN currently has 62 participants signed up to run the race on their behalf and is urging people to support them by taking part. The charity will be on hand on the day to cheer their supporters on as part of the volunteering team helping to run the event.
Susan Crighton, CLAN’s fundraising manager, said:
“CLAN is delighted to have been chosen as the local charity for what is shaping up to be a fantastic day. This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to have some fun, get muddy and help raise money to help us continue our provision of free support services to anyone affected by cancer across the north and north-east of Scotland.
“Fundraising events like Mud Madness are crucial to CLAN and make such a difference to us. We are urging people to get behind the inaugural event and look forward to supporting them on the day.”
