Wineathlon Set For Stirlingshire

MedocGlasgow's proposed Wineathlon – the 10k which offers runners wine samples at each two-mile stop – is now set to be held in Stirlingshire following opposition from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

Scotland’s biggest health board said it would 'contest any application' for the race to be held. The more robust licensing laws in Scotland were also expected to pose a problem for race organisers TeamOA.

However, Stirling Council have approved an application to host the race in the Carron Valley Forest. 

Wane Law from TeamOA has responded to criticism of his event, saying: "We're giving people the chance to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors."

The event will be held on 24 September and costs £18 to enter.
