The Gatehouse Gala “Roon the Watter” run is imminent, and the organisers are inviting people to enter.

The run is held as part of the town’s gala wee, and takes place on Tuesday, July 30, starting at 6.30pm.

Both the six-mile run and two-mile event (for 11 years and under) begin and end at the community centre.

Challenge Shields are awarded to the first male and first female overall, with medals also given for first, second and third places in each male and female age group. There is also a trophy given to the first local (a permanent resident of Anwoth or Girthon parishes) in each age group. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal.

Entry forms, along with the appropriate fees and an 8”x10” self-addressed envelope with stamp, should be sent to G Macnamara, 8 Catherine Street, Gatehouse of Fleet, DG7 2JD, by July 20. Call 01557 814594 for more information.
