PUPILS are encouraging people to put their best foot forward to help raise funds for their school.

A fun run through the grounds of Dallas Estates has been organised by Dallas Primary School Parent Partnership for Sunday, March 15 for the first time, and it is hoped the race will become an annual event.

Stuart Davis of the parent partnership confirmed the organisers are grateful for advice given by runner Paul Rogan and Forres Harriers.

Mr Davis said: "There will be two routes: a 1k and a slightly more challenging 6k. Neither are too challenging as we want as many people to take part and have fun.

"There will also be delicious, home-made cakes and other refreshments for competitors at the finish.''

Fellow organiser Catriona Davis pointed out that the Parent Partnership are always looking for ways to support Dallas Primary.

She said: "We want this event to bring the whole community together. It also fits with the school’s ethos of enjoying and learning from time outside."

A 1k route will follow Dallas Main Street.

A more challenging 6k run will take competitors on a circular route east, through Dallas, before heading towards Forres.

Mrs Davis added: "They will be required to tackle a short, sharp hill before turning into Dallas Estates and following the Tarmac track through woodland.

"The final stage of the run returns to Dallas from the opposite end of the high street. The route will be well signposted and there will be marshalls on the course to point in the right direction."

Registration is from 9.30am at the Houldsworth Institute, Dallas. The run start times are 10.30am for the 1k and 11am for the 6k.
