The social history of Wester Hailes

Wester Hailes Fun Run 2013

Fun Run 1992After we blogged last year about the history of the Fun Run in Wester Hailes, a group of organisations and residents decided it was time to bring this popular event back to the area.  The 2012 Fun Run was a great success despite some torrential rain, with a great range of people turning out to run despite the terrible weather conditions!

This year the 2013 Fun Run is taking place on Sunday 16th June starting at 10.00am in Hailes Quarry Park.  The route is still 5k, and you can run, walk or jog, it’s up to you!  Completed entry forms have to be returned by Friday 7th June.  The route includes a large part of the old route that used to be used, including the infamous Greenway hill, but most competitors manage to climb it, and there’s a water station at Clovenstone Community Centre for those who need a breather!

If you would like to know more, please contact Caroline Richards on 0131 272 5025 or you can download the entry form here.
