The Fun Run Returns!

Fun run start detail

The Wester Hailes Fun Run made a great return on Sunday with over 100 people coming along to run, jog and walk the route. Whilst the front placings were as fiercely contested as ever, the main emphasis was on having fun and completing the route, with everyone receiving a medal and finishers bag. This was the event’s first year back after the pandemic, so it was really encouraging to see so many people taking part, and to have such a varied age range.

As a community based housing association, we want to support activities and events that celebrate the local community we are proud to be part of. We are part of the Fun Run Planning Group and we are involved both in the lead up and in providing help on the day. The event is a great example of local partnership working, with a range of organisations working together to make sure that everything goes smoothly. This year we also want to thank Bells Group for the donation of a new Winner’s Trophy, Scotmid for the donation of fruit, Open Heavens Church for the donation of the Finishers’ bags and the City of Edinburgh Lions Club for the donation of the water.

There are more photos of the Fun Run on our Facebook and Instagram pages, and also on the Digital Sentinel Facebook page.
