Edinburgh Hairy Haggis Marathon Relay – Sunday 29 May

The Parent Council have 3 teams of dedicated parents running the Edinburgh Hairy Haggis Marathon Relay on Sunday 29th May.

They have been training hard over the last few weeks, through all kinds of weather, juggling work and family life too. Each team runs 26.2 miles, divided into four legs: 8.3 miles, 5.5 miles, 8 miles and 4.4 miles.  You can read more about the race here: https://www.edinburghmarathon.com/relay/route-map

We have 2 requests:

Firstly, please sponsor us! We are aiming to raise money to fund some new books for the school (class reading sets, non-fiction books across all levels, alternatives and extensions to reading schemes) and to repair and maintain the raised vegetable beds in the playground. Contribute to our Just Giving page here and make the teams’ efforts well rewarded: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/tynewaterparentcouncil

Secondly, if you’re free on Sunday 29th May, please come along and support us along the route. The race starts at 10am and you can find any space along the route to cheer us on (route map here: https://www.edinburghmarathon.com/relay/route-map.

We would love to see you!

Many thanks,

Emma Diffley, Chair, Tynewater Parent Council
