On Saturday, September 6, Jogscotland members took part in the Highland Perthshire Marathon and Half marathon event.

On the last weekend of September members took part in the BEAST in Banchory , the Inverness Marathon and Inverness 10k with many achieving personal best times.

A special mention must go to Martin Kerrigan for becoming our “marathon man” completing five marathons in five months, in China, Edinburgh, Dundee, Moray and finishing with a PB Inverness.

The athletics club is now preparing for the Peterhead 10k which will take place on Sunday November 9 at 1pm from Dales Park Pavilion.
