The third annual 10k, the event is organised by St Cyrus Solos Running Club with the aim of driving community spirit and encouraging health and fitness.

Taking place on Sunday, June 25, the event will see participants enjoy a grand scenic 10k course in and around St Cyrus, with prizes and medals handed out to runners on completion of the run and money being raised for local charities.

With the success the family-run business has had with its completed development in Marykirk and current development nearing completion in Johnshaven, Fotheringham Homes has chosen to become its main sponsor as part of a charitable drive to give back and contribute to communities in the local area.

The company has seen an expansion in its property development growth with houses at its Laurencekirk site planned to be released in mid to late April and construction to begin in May.

More recently, it has announced its development at Linton Mews in Gourdon where 49 houses are planned to be released and available for sale in June before construction begins later this year.

Michael Fotheringham, director, said: “We’re delighted to be the main sponsor of the St Cyrus 10k run this year. It is important to us as a family business to give back to our local area and community and we felt that this was a great opportunity for us to do so.”

Last year’s run saw St Cyrus Solos donate £150 each to five local charities, including Lathallan School to assist the building of a cross country running track that the wider community can benefit from; Connect with Mindfulness and Nature which encourages children to enjoy nature responsibly and Defibrillators in Angus which aims to put a defibrillator in every school in the county.

Debbie Wilkinson and Vicki Findlater, race co-directors said: “We would like to thank Fotheringham Homes for their sponsorship of the event and we are grateful to them for supporting our local running club and community endeavours.”
