Balloch Set For Devil Of An Event

CHAS teamA devilishly good event in support of Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) is set to take place in Balloch on Halloween this year. The 6.66k Devil Dash will be held on 31 October in Balloch Country Park. 
The event invites participants in and around Glasgow to lace up their running shoes, dress up as cheeky devils and walk or run around the park to support CHAS, the only charity in the country providing specialised hospice services to babies, children and young people with life-shortening illnesses.
Debbie Mooney, head of Projects and Development, said: “We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response to the event so far! It’s a great excuse to get together with your friends and have some fun, raising awareness and money for a good cause at the same time. We’re urging as many people as possible to sign up, throw on some devil horns and join in. We really hope that CHAS Devil Dash will become a staple event in the diaries of people across Scotland at Halloween.”
The charity is encouraging entrants old and young to sign up for the 6.66km. Whether you’re an experienced runner or just want to go out with your friends or work colleagues and have some fun, you’re welcome to throw on your fancy dress outfit and join in.
Registration is now open for the spooktacular event. By registering today for only £12.50 per person (with a pledge to raise a minimum of £30 sponsorship) entrants will receive a CHAS Devil Dash sponsor pack, official dash number, a set of devil horns, and fundraising hints and tips from their local fundraiser.
For an additional £2.50 at registration entrants will receive an exclusive CHAS Devil Dash t-shirt (enter £15 when entering payment).
