Over 300 primary school children from the Machars took part in the annual cross country challenge in Bladnoch Park recently. The children had the choice of competing in the Have A Go Half Mile, a Hilly Half Mile or the Michty Mile over the fields at Bladnoch. The event finished with an inter-school relay for some friendly rivalry between the school taking part. All the competitors received a Machars Cross Country badge afterwards.
Full results will appear in a future edition of The Galloway Gazette.
