THE fifth annual Kayleigh’s Wee Stars Barra 10K will take place on Saturday, May 30.

The Oldmeldrum race has a scenic, challenging route with runners tackling the Barra hill to raise vital funds for the charity.

This event is one of Kayleigh’s Wee Stars main fundraisers, with over £650,000 helping to support almost 350 families across Scotland during the last seven years.

The current course records were both set in 2018 with Tom Roche holding the men’s record of 36mins 29secs, and Ellie Buchan holding the female record of 40:33.

Last year's winners were Kenny O’Neill and Emma Murray.

For the first time, the 2020 race will also include category age prizes.

Kayleigh’s Wee Stars was established in 2012 by Jonathan and Anna Cordiner after losing their daughter Kayleigh to a terminal illness.

The charity provides financial support for families where there is a child with a terminal diagnosis and will support them through the most difficult times.
