This year’s Mind Your Head fun run and walk is to be held in a new location at Cunningsburgh.
The eighth annual event, on Sunday 25th August, is moving from Spiggie where it has been held for the past seven years.
Project worker Jenny Teale said: “As the event grew each year the safety of our participants is of utmost importance to us and we took the decision to move so we could provide better parking, safer off-road routes and a new look refreshed fun run and walk.”
Participants will still be able to choose from the 5k and 10k routes and online registration is now available.The registration process has also had a revamp and the Mind Your Head team hopes this will make it even easier for participants to be part of the event.
Earlier this year a T-shirt designing competition was launched within the local primary schools and the team was overwhelmed by the hundreds of entries received.
Mrs Teale said: “The standard of entries was extremely high and it was so encouraging to see that the understanding of what Mind Your Head does and the importance of looking after your mental wellbeing was being so well absorbed by the children.”
The winning T-shirt was designed by Tingwall pupil Jack Sharp and will be worn by everyone who pre-registers for the event.
The Cunningsburgh hall will showcase many more of the T-shirt designs on the walk/run day, and participants will be able to view them while enjoying the tea and cakes that will be on offer in the hall. This year’s T-shirts are sponsored by Westside Pine.
