Edinburgh Lions help make Wester Hailes Fun Run 2015 a success!

..and they're off

..and they’re off

Wester Hailes Fun Run 2015 took place on Sunday 14 June, and though the sun may not have been shining plenty of people came along to run, cheer and have a great time!

Edinburgh Lion’s honorary member Lord Provost Donald Wilson club braves it in his T-shirt regalia.

There was a celebration before the event where the Lord Provost Donald Wilson presented an award to Ellie Campbell who had won the design a Fun Run Poster competition.

The Fun Run, the fourth since it was brought back due to interest in older photos, saw participants run or walk a 5km route around Wester Hailes. Starting from WHEC the route runs along the canal, over the bridge towards Dumbryden before looping and heading up to Clovenstone and then back along the canal to WHEC. Over one hundred people endured the chilly weather to take part.

As an area, Wester Hailes has a complex and fascinating history, sometimes controversial, always thought provoking. It is a place of social historical significance both in terms of its physical transformation but also through the emergence of a strong community that developed what was once regarded as one of the most sophisticated forms of community involvement in the UK.

Lions Tom and Beth Jamieson from the City of Edinburgh Lions Club supported the day by doing the registration. Our service to the community – we serve as stewards. And our honoranry member Lord Provost Donald Wilson club braves it in his T-shirt regalia.

Wester Hailes Fun Run/Walk is a 5k route round Wester Hailes starting and finishing at the WHEC. It’s for everyone- serious runners, fancy dress runners, families, friends etc. You can run, jog or walk, it’s up to you! – so a fun day for all.
