A number of Dunoon Hill Runners will be running the Glencoe Marathon and Mamores Half Marathon on 5 October 2014. Each runner must raise a minimum of £100 for the full marathon and £75 for the half marathon and this will go to the race organisers’ nominated charity which is Project Northern Lights. We intend to raise this and anything over and above will go towards 2 local charities which are Happy Dayz and Arrochar Mountain Rescue.
