On 28 May 2017, three Student Advisors and one parent are going to run the Edinburgh Half Marathon to raise funds for the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic.
Student advisors Katrina Durie, Sean Iles and Rurai Peacock will all take part in the half-marathon with Melissa Jack’s father running in her place as she cannot make it. All funds raised will go to the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic.
The Half Marathon starts in London and Regent Road before passing by the Holyrood Palace. It then runs through Holyrood Park and onto Meadowbank Sports Stadium. It then turns north, along Lochend Road and Leith Links before reaching Portobello Promenade. The route then stretches along Musselburgh Road before reaching Musselburgh Racecourse. It goes a couple of miles further up Ravenheugh Road beyond the Prestongrange Mining Museum before looping around and heading back past Musselburgh. It then finishes in the playing fields at Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School.
Fundraising Officer Andrew Harding commented:
“It is great to see such enthusiasm for the Law Clinic from its members. I would like to say thank you to all of the runners for their efforts in this challenge. Any donations would be gratefully received, and will allow us to carry on with the Clinic’s efforts to boost access to justice in the local community and beyond.”
