Ap­peal for ideas for 35th mile­stone

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Clare Damodaran

Or­gan­is­ers of the an­nual New Year’s Day Fun Run and Walk are ap­peal­ing to past par­tic­i­pants and mem­bers of the pub­lic to come for­ward with ideas of how they think the 35th an­niver­sary of the event should be marked.

The fun run has taken place on New Year’s Day ev­ery year for 34 years, and or­gan­is­ers are keen to mark the event’s mile­stone 35th an­niver­sary in some way. Bob El­lis is one of the or­gan­is­ers. He said: “We would like to hear from any­one, ei­ther mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity or peo­ple who have taken part in the fun run or the walk since it started, to con­tact us with any ideas they may have about how we can mark our 35th event on Jan­uary 1, 2019.

“The first race was held in 1984 so maybe we should en­cour­age peo­ple to dress up in 80s gear, or even just fancy dress.

“In an­niver­sary terms, 35 years is an emer­ald an­niver­sary, so per­haps ev­ery­one tak­ing part should wear some­thing green.

“To mark the mil­len­nium in 2000 we held a spe­cial 2000m race be­fore the fun run, and maybe we could look to do some­thing along those lines again.

“Or we could have a spe­cial an­niver­sary break­fast.

“What­ever your idea, we would love to hear from you and we will en­sure that we pull out all the stops to make it a mem­o­rable day.”

Any­one who has any ideas can email Bob on bob.el­[email protected]­in­ter­net.com
