Well wasn’t it a fantastic day for a run ! Great turnout of about 150 folk, and the new route was a cracker! Blair to Kirrie, Forfar, Montrose , then Stonehaven and up to Banchory for the lunch stop. Then along Deeside and back over Glenshee. Charlie had organised loads of food for everyone who came back to the Red House, where we had the Prize Draw and the raffle.
Looks like the total raised will be over £2000 so thanks to everyone who came along on the day and all our helpers, friends and those who donated prizes. Thanks also to the Red House Hotel Coupar Angus for hosting the start and finish.
And we made the front page in the Blairgowrie Advertiser with a group picture under the banner, and a good write-up about the Maggie’s, so thanks to Clare of the Blairie too for that.
With a miserable forecast for snow and high winds, not the night for a bike run so we’ll do it next month. Meet at 31 as usual tonight.
Tuesday night runs will start after the first Chippy Run – that’s the first Tuesday in May, the 3rd. Leave Wellmeadow sharp at 7.00
Poss destinations – Chapelhill pub on the Harrietfield road, Braemar (of course) and maybe we could decide on the next week’s destinations a week in advance. This will mean anyone on the run will be later arriving at No31.
Our 11th Maggie’s Run will be Sunday May 8th, starting at the Red House Hotel, Coupar Angus. We’re having a different route this year, so put it in your diary and come along!

Yes, this year’s Maggie’s Run, the 11th, will be on Sunday May 8th, starting as usual around 10.00 from the Red House Hotel, Coupar Angus. This year we’re planning a new route, still around 120 miles, through fantastic scenery of course, and then finishing at the Red House instead of Maggie’s Centre in Dundee. More details to follow but put it in your diaries now!
Next club night will be 16th Feb
Yes, we’re all set for a grand nicht with music, songs, haggis and pipers! Don’t miss it!

First meeting in January will be the 5th – hope to see folk then. Then the 19th.
