Rutherglen Reformer - - Gossip Girl -

Res­i­dents in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are be­ing urged to tackle Scot­land’s tough­est trekathon to raise money for a good cause.

The 26.2 mile long Glen­coe Chal­lenge will see par­tic­i­pants cover the marathon dis­tance from the heart of Glen­coe to the foothills of Ben Ne­vis.

Parkin­son’s UK have or­gan­ised the event which will take place on July 2.

No ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary and par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive ex­pert guid­ance through­out from pro­fes­sional event staff.

Parkin­son’s UK is look­ing for as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to join up and make it a mem­o­rable day.

Fundraiser Emma Hall said: “The work of Parkin­son’s UK - whether it be worldlead­ing re­search or pro­vid­ing lo­cal sup­port for peo­ple with Parkin­son’s - is en­tirely de­pen­dent on do­na­tions and fundrais­ing events like this.

“There’s al­ways a great team spirit at these events and it is sure to be a fun day. Parkin­son’s UK wants more peo­ple to take part so if you are in­ter­ested get in touch.”
