After a series of local workshops to increase the community interaction with the website a local resident keen on running and keeping fit is aiming to set up a running group to connect like minded people interested in running in and around our beautiful area.

Chris Clark said to the community website:

Having come back to running after a long absence, I have noticed the large number of runners pounding the railway line and pavements around the village.  I was also impressed with the number of local runners taking part in the Gala Fun Run.

It occurred to me are these runners connected?  Do they support each other? Are they even interested in encouraging running in this area?

If you are interested in an online support group to encourage running and runners in our area find us on Facebook at Running Doune or e-mail me at
