We are delighted to announce that we will be organising the Haddo House Cross Country running races for the third successive year on Sunday 28th January 2018 as part of The Running Shop Winter XC Series. The event has a Scottish Athletics license.
In order to make the event possible and for life changing proceeds to go towards our kids in Kenya, we would really appreciate:
1. 40 volunteers to help out from 9.30am to 3pm in roles such as marshals, taking entries, collating results, starting the races and 1 qualified first aider.
2. Any company or individual who would be in a position to be an event sponsor. Sponsorship costs £300 and logos/literature can be displayed far and wide on the day.
Please email email@example.com if you are able to help with either of the above.
Full details and online entries can be found at https://www.entrycentral.com/Haddo2017_2018 – entries on the day will also be available.
Thank you so much to the record number of people who ran and supported our Haddo House Cross Country races – you raised an incredible £2,307.41 which is almost 4x as much as last year and is enough to build a 2 bedroom house for one of our families in Kenya.
This simply would not be possible without the army of amazing volunteers who came out to marshal, take entries, run alongside the competitors, collate results and more! It’s impossible to mention everyone but special thanks to Abi, Emily and Mo who came out Saturday and Sunday to set up the course and marshal, Tammy Wilson and Jog Scotland Kintore for rallying 30 volunteers, Jackie and Craig for taking on the challenging job of results and succeeding, Peter Jennings (and Jackie again) of Metro Aberdeen and Andrew Ferguson for their support leading up to the race, Diana and Haddo for letting us use the stunning Haddo Estate, Mrs Smith for supporting our volunteers with food and last but not least every volunteer, runner and spectator.
Huge thanks to our generous sponsors Susi Adams Clinic Ltd, Run4it, David Lloyd Clubs, Service Point UK & Prosource.IT – you played a very big role in making this achievement possible.
You have all done something very special today which will transform the lives of our kids. Thank you!

Thank you to all 272 runners and their supporters who took part in our races at Haddo House on Sunday 24th January 2016, your efforts raised £602.05 which will enable us to pay the tuition fees of 60 primary school children in Kenya for the whole of 2016.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to our 35 volunteers and Metro Aberdeen Running Club – you took care of entries, results and stood out in the cold for hours as marshals with 100% enthusiasm and without you this event wouldn’t have been able to go ahead. Final thank you goes to Diana at Haddo House, Mrs Smith’s Cafe, Run4it, Universal Inspection (UK) Ltd and prosource.IT for your support of the event.
