If you can’t make it to Thornhill on the day of the event but still want to support Beatson Cancer Charity, our virtual 10K is for you! Choose your own 10K route and walk, jog or run it between the 1st and 15th May, then email us evidence of your run and we’ll post you out a medal. £2 from every virtual 10K entry fee will go to Beatson Cancer Charity.
The Thornhill 10K – Round The Frews has been created in honour of local dairy farmer, Steven Black, who passed away in 2020 after a short battle with Duodenal Cancer.
Duodenal Cancer is a very rare and difficult to detect, often until it is too late, therefore greater research is required into screening and treatment for this aggressive cancer.
Not long after Steven passed away, his close friend Neil MacLaren started a year long challenge, of running 10K every day, to fundraise for Beatson Cancer Charity. Neil completed this amazing challenge in April 2021 and raised over £10,000.
Steven and Neils’ families have teamed up with Tay Fitness Events to bring you the Thornhill 10K – Round the Frews from 2022. You will be taking on the same route that Neil pounded, through all weathers, to complete his 10K a day for a year challenge. £2 from every 10K entry fee will go to Beatson Cancer Charity along with fundraising on the day of the event.
We all want the memory of Steven to live on in the village and to continue to support Beatson Cancer Charity, in his honour.
