Go Forth And Conquer

Runner at last year's Canal Run

Around 200 competitors will head to the banks of the Forth and Clyde Canal for the Deafblind Scotland 10K and 5K fun run on Saturday 20 April. The annual race aims to support Scotland's deafblind population and has attracted participants from all corners of the globe in recent years.

Deafblind Scotland chief executive, Ruth Dorman, encourages runners of all ages and abilities to come to East Dunbartonshire for the event, saying: "We are really excited about this year's runs as the last few have been so successful.

"The best thing about the event is that it is fun for everyone, no matter if you are a Mo Farah wannabe, or a grandparent looking to share the 5k with the grandchildren. There are still spaces left so anyone interested should get in touch."

Registration for the 5k family-friendly fun run opens at 12.45pm with the run starting at 1.15pm. Entry costs from £6 to £8. Registration for the 10k opens at 1pm with the start gun sounding at 2pm. Entry is £8 to £10. Both runs start at, and finish near to, the Bishopbriggs Leisuredome. To enter, visit the Deafblind Scotland website.
