We are proud to announce that Charlie Reid from the Proclaimers will be putting on his running shoes and taking part in the BUPA Great Edinburgh Run for AICR this October!
Charlie and his brother, Craig, penned a Scottish anthem when they wrote 'I'm Gonna Be' (500 miles).
Now Charlie, one half of Scotland’s most-loved band, The Proclaimers, is taking time out from recording their 9th studio album to run a much shorter distance, in aid of AICR.
Charlie says, ‘I am delighted to be running for a Scottish based charity doing such vital research across the World that we have supported for a number of years. I'm looking forward to it very much.’
The Great Edinburgh Run captures many of Edinburgh’s most famous historic attractions and is regarded by many as one of the most scenic city centre running events in the world as it passes Edinburgh Castle, the famous cobbles of the Royal Mile, and the Scottish Parliament Building.
