MEMBERS of the 1st Carnoustie Company, Boys’ Brigade, who are currently undertaking their Queen’s Badge have decided as part of the physical aspect of their badge to undertake the Glasgow Half Marathon in September.
Over the past few weeks they have been gathering at 7.30 a.m. on the Black Slab in Carnoustie to undertake training runs around the golf course.
On Sunday they took things a step further when Queen’s Badge boys, Jack Garrigan, Jack Mullholand and Craig Knight, accompanied by officers Scott Ferguson and Cameron Morrison and some of their younger BB colleagues, James MacCallum, Calum MacGilivray and Michael Jamieson, took part in the 6K Errol Fun Run.
They will be building up the miles over the next few months to ensure that they are in peak condition to run the half marathon. The boys are not only running the event to increase their own personal fitness but also to raise money for charity. They will be circulating sponsor forms over the interim period to raise money for the Level 8 project in China run by Mr Bell at Carnoustie High School.
Pictured are the boys just before the start of the race on Sunday.
