Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland are appealing for walkers to sign-up for their annual Lanarkshire Loch Walkathon this spring.
Inaugurated last year when it attracted 120 walkers and raised almost £3500 for the charity, the walk will take place on Saturday, March 2, at the James Hamilton Heritage Park.
The route is up to five kilometres which represents four circuits of the loch although there is an option to do less on the day.
The event is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, wheelchair users, buggies - even the dog is welcome.
Fundraiser for CHSS, Andrea McIntyre, said: “The Lanarkshire Loch Walkathon was such a success last year that we’re hoping to make it an annual fixture in the local walking calendar. It’s a great way to show that exercise can be fun and that everyone can take steps to improve their fitness level, whatever their age or ability.
“They can also help us fund the wide range of services we provide in East Kilbride and Hamilton – from stroke groups to stroke nurses, advice line to free publications and medical research.”
The cost is £10 for adults, £5 for young people aged five to 17 years with under -fives taking part free.
