The Bhaltos 10k

The Linda Norgrove Foundation has now held seven consecutive and successful 10k events on the Bhaltos Peninsula on the Isle of Lewis. On 30 September 2017 people ran or walked in support in the UK, mainland Europe, USA and New Zealand, to name a few!

DAI organised a 5K on the same day in Washington DC and Roddy Gillies encouraged his work colleagues to run 10K on treadmills on an oil rig off the west coast of Shetland.

It is a great opportunity for friends and supporters all over the world to get together and remember Linda whilst raising funds for the Foundation.

The 10K event will take place on the
29 September 2018. A date for your diaries. More details in due course.
