Penicuik 10k 2024

On behalf of the Penicuik Harriers Running Club, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for participating in the Penicuik 10K Road Race yesterday. Your enthusiasm, determination, and sportsmanship truly made the event a remarkable success. From seasoned athletes to first-time racers you all got on with it and our community and club members hopefully made you feel welcome and supported.

We extend our sincere appreciation to our volunteers, sponsors, and spectators whose contributions were invaluable in making this event possible. Locally we use Inspired by Tweed for our medals and trophy coasters, they work right up to event day ensuring we have enough medals for everyone.  Colorprinz printed the numbers and lots of other printing needs that we had and again worked quickly for us.  Flowers by Lindsey and Fran Jones Massage Therapy provide vouchers for local winners and these are real treats for those that win them.  Our bigger sponsors are Nicol brothers and Carnethy Woodfuel whose contribution helps us to make the event happen and for this we are very grateful.

It goes without saying, and you will all have witnessed, the support of Midlothian Council and Police Scotland who ensure that we can close roads, have parking restrictions in place, have barriers and cones positioned and bascially are the reason that our race gets to run through the town.  Scottish Athletic provide our permit and the officials on the day which means that we are a respected and trusted race in the racing calender.

We are very lucky to have, as one of our club members a very talented photographer in Michael Philp.  I saw him capturing you all at the end and he was out on the route too, I will share the link to his photos on out facebook page and website when I get it.

Up&Running gave us a discount on our prize vouchers which is another great way to support the race – many thanks to them for this.  Blast Running allowed us to borrow gazebos, tables and other race equipment – all of this helped to make the event what it was.

Our fundraiser for Lymphona Action on behalf of our club memeberJan Dawson has raised a staggering amount!! Through the Just Giving page, the cash in the buckets and the QR code being scanned at the baking and refreshments table we have raised………….£612.74 also 2 Euros, a dime and a quarter 🙂  This is way beyond any amount we thought possible and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  We have always raised money to support charities that have helped our club members and this year you have helped us achieve this incredible amount.

    Well said Susie, so sorry I couldn’t be with you all on what must have been a very warm and testing day.
