The organisers of Inverurie’s Run Garioch are helping another local fundraising run achieve the same goals of making environmental and financial sustainability its key focus.

Working in partnership with Run Garioch’s 5K sponsor PMC Property Management – which also sponsors Run Rayne North – dozens of recyclable boxes of water have been donated to the school fundraiser, set to be held on Sunday, September 11.

PMC managing director Neale Bisset said: “Following on from our title sponsorship of the Run Garioch 5K, PMC are delighted to continue our support of our local communities by sponsoring not only the medals and prizes for Run Rayne North, but also the water for all participants.

“As an independent, family run company, local causes are close to our heart, and none more so than supporting Rayne North Primary, which a number of PMC grandchildren currently attend.”

With Run Rayne North now in its fourth year, organisers Rayne North Parent Council expect to attract nearly 150 runners across the two races that make up the event.

Lisa Strachan of the Rayne North Parent Council said: “We’re delighted to have the backing of Run Garioch and PMC who are supporting our fundraising 5K and 10K running event this year with hydration boxes.

“This collaboration for sport in the Garioch area not only promotes the sustainability of local sporting events, but also supports the wider community through the reduced environmental impact.”

Run Garioch race director Graham Morrison said: “Sustainability, through the removal of single use plastics on our routes, was a key focus for Run Garioch this year, and we’re delighted to help Run Rayne North do the same thing.

“Our contribution will also help the Rayne North Parent Council reduce their costs, which means more money going directly back to the school for various projects.”

The inaugural Run Rayne North funded the purchase of outdoor equipment and a shed; the last two funded the purchase of a smart TV.

Rayne North Parent Council intend to use funds raised by the 2022 event to upgrade the library management system, as well as purchase more books.
