Banchory Scout Group will be holding their first ever fun run later this month, to raise money for their trip to Canada in 2016.

The event is for the whole family, and will feature three different routes of different distances, up to five kilometres.

Fancy dress is encouraged, and there will be prizes for the best outfits as well as the winners. There will also be a family barbecue and activities for all ages available on the day.

All funds raised will go towards the group’s 2016 expedition to Canada, where the Scouts will experience life on a Canadian scout reserve, and samle Canadian living.

It takes place on Saturday, August 22 at Knockburn Loch, Strachan. There is a £5 entry fee for adults and children over five. You can register for the fun run at: https://banchoryscoutsfunrun.eventbrite.co.uk.
