11k Re­mem­brance Day run

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A FOR­MER sol­dier has organised an 11km Re­mem­brance Day char­ity run.

Martin Brady, who is now a per­sonal trainer at Ur­banFit in Dundee, has organised the Run to Re­mem­ber event to help raise funds for the Help for He­roes cam­paign.

Martin (pic­tured) said: “I thought this would be a great way to raise some money for Help for He­roes and some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent to com­mem­o­rate Re­mem­brance Day on Novem­ber 11.

“The run will start at 11am di­rectly af­ter a minute’s si­lence is held. We will be­gin from the lifeboat sta­tion in Broughty Ferry and run to the war me­mo­rial in Moni­fi­eth. The route is ex­actly 11km, so it worked out well.

“So far, we have had around 120 peo­ple show­ing in­ter­est in the run and more than 70 peo­ple have reg­is­tered to take part. Any­one can join in. It’s not a race. We even have folk who are in wheel­chairs signed up.”

The event will also see a pipe band play at Barn­hill Rock Gar­dens and a buf­fet at the An­chor Bar in Broughty Ferry, with meat be­ing pro­vided by Yorkes Butch­ers.
