Save the date: 10k and counting

For the third year running (forgive the pun) CCW are the headline sponsors for the fantastic CCW Linlithgow 10k and Junior Fun Run which is held annually in and around the historic town of Linlithgow.  This year the event takes place on SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER.  We raise money for our chosen charity – MS Scotland – and also relish working with and supporting the local community.  Our team of running lawyers is assembled, and training (more fun than it sounds) has begun; other members of CCW will be marshalling and generally mucking in, and even our families get involved, because that’s the kind of law firm we are!

This year we enjoyed teaming up with Linlithgow Academy CDT department, and devised a competition to design the T shirt that every 10k runner receives on the day. The response from pupils and staff was brilliant – we had 250 entries from S1 all the way up to S6.  Winners and runners up received Amazon vouchers and the winning designers will have their names printed on the T shirts. Dolce and Gabbana watch out! This was a great project and we’d like to extend many thanks to Linlithgow Academy for all their hard work.

The ultimate winners of the T shirt design competition were Katie Graham & Eilidh McFadden (3rd year) and the runners up were Harry Moore & Pierre Lardet (2nd year) and Ellie Hutcheon & Zoe Brand (3rd year).

We’ll send you another reminder in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, why not dust off those trainers and enter here – the CCW 10k organised by Linlithgow AC is for a very worthwhile cause and is an excellent excuse to get fit or set yourself a challenge.  The course is interesting enough for seasoned runners and suitably scenic if you just want to jog round at your own pace. Anything goes!

If you’d rather show your support in another way, we would be very grateful indeed for any sponsorship donations via our Just Giving page.  Click here to donate, and put the date in your diary if you’d like to come and enjoy a fun day out watching the race.
