Sun, fun and a run at the CCW Linlithgow 10k

Last Sunday 25th September saw the CCW 10k and Fun Run in all its glory for the third year, and what a fantastic day it was.  The weather was kind, the spectators and supporters were brilliant and we were, of course, extra proud of our own star runners, who joined the 800 or so participants.

Caroline and Kieran ran as a team and completed the challenging route in less than an hour, coming in at an impressive 57.58 minutes; both were placed in the top third.  Meanwhile, our speedy junior runners Claire, Sarah and Connor, tore round the Fun Run in less than 10 minutes – a great achievement!

We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who supported us: as well as sponsoring the event as a whole, we also raised £130 for our chosen charity, MS Society, and if you’d like to make a contribution to this very worthy cause, you can still do so, as our Just Giving page will be available for another seven days.  Click here to contribute – thank you for all your generosity.

In the meantime, dust off those trainers if you’ve haven’t run for a while (or indeed, ever) and why not get into training for next year’s Linlithgow 10k – we’ll see you there!

The training hots up for the CCW 10K on Sunday 25th September

Here at CCW, our keen runners (and enthusiastic have-a-goers) are all gearing up for Sunday’s 10k and Fun Run in lovely Linlithgow.   Raising money for a cause close to our hearts: MS Scotland, we are proud to be not only sponsoring the event for the third year running, we are also actively participating in all kinds of ways.

Firstly, giving it their all on the day will be two of our lawyers: Kieran Reilly and Caroline Maher, who are both tackling the varied, scenic and occasionally challenging 10k course.  CCW Partner Alison Marshall would normally be taking part, but she has the very good excuse of recently giving birth to a son, Malcolm David Marshall – many congratulations, Alison – and we’re delighted that mother and baby will both be there to support our team of hardy runners.

Next up we have fun runners Connor Dixon, Claire Nicholson and Sarah Johnston, all family members of CCW staff, and we’d like to say a special thank you to these young athletes for taking part.  We have other non-running contributors who give up their Sunday to help marshall the race; an important job for which we are hugely appreciative.

Finally, it’s not too late to do your bit.  The deadline to participate in the races has passed, but please do come along and support us on the day – we’re hoping for a great turnout of CCW staff, friends and family. The event has a brilliant atmosphere and the more cheering us on, the better.  And of course, we are still collecting donations and sponsorship.  Please click here to donate via our Just Giving page and go to the CCW Linlithgow 10k and Fun Run event website to find out more about the location and timings of the race.

Go Team CCW!
