The sun was beating hot and hard upon the stunning grounds of Crathes Castle as the Crathes Half Marathon got under way and we provided a Corporate Family Fun Day Afternoon of exciting activities for spectators and participants alike. The event was sponsored by Aker Solutions and there was lots of Inflatable Fun from good old Bouncy Castles to the classic Gladiator Duel to keep the supporters of the race entertained. We also had our Target Zone set as well as our very own Highland Games arena whereby we got involved in some Scottish Classics of Toss the Caber and Haggis Hurling keeping the young and young at heart entertained for hours.

As the starting gun announced the beginning of the race we all waited with baited breath for our first runner to return and return he did in an incredible 1 hour 11 minutes! Wow! Our activities were open to the sound of the fantastic Pipe Band as the runners all made their way across that finish line to much applause and the collective pride of our audience and the relief of our masseurs who were ready to relieve the discomfort of our athletes. With lots of yummy food and a fair few energy drinks to keep all the runners going the afternoon flew by in the sun.

As we drew to a close all of our runners making their way home to a well deserved dinner and bed it was time to say a huge thank you to Gareth for all of his hard work in putting the afternoon together. We very much look forward to joining you all again soon - we may even be persuaded to run- then again perhaps not!

What an inspiration it was to work along side you all! I hope you have all managed to recover now. The determination it must have taken for each of you to complete in that scorching heat just blows me away so huge well done to you all for that. We had so much fun filling our passports on all the activities and I very much look forward to the same next year. Sarah-Jane
