Winton Trail Run Participants Outside Winton HouseNearly five hundred sports men, women and children took part in the Winton Trail Run in East Lothian yesterday, competing in cool April sunshine only disturbed briefly by a rogue hail storm.

Formerly the Pencaitland Fun Run, the Winton Trail Run and cycle has raised funds to support the educational works of registered charities the Pencaitland Primary School PTA and Pencaitland Playgroup. Charlotte Taylor organised the first ever race back in 2010 and has worked really hard every year to make it bigger and better.

Participants were warmed up at the start by Pryde Zumba and awarded biscuit medals at the end! Finishers were greeted by bacon rolls and home baking at the Winton Potting Shed in the walled garden at Winton House.
