The Galloway Forest Park at Kirroughtree

Just over a month to go until Festival Director Nathon Jones taks tae the hills on Sunday 12th May 2019 for the Galloway Hillbillies Kirroughtree Hillbilly Duathlon to raise funds for The Vault Arts Centre but he still needs your help to reach his fundraising target of £500.00.

The Kirroughtree Hillbilly Duathlon consists of a 10km trail run followed by an 18km mountain bike around the flowing trails of the Galloway Forest Park in South West Scotland.  The run follows walkers paths and forest road, with the mountain bike route sticking to the 7stanes red route. (The Twister).

All monies raised will go to Trad Music Trust's JustGiving fundraising campaign for The Vault, the proposed new music, dance, language, arts and crafts centre at the former Royal Bank of Scotland building in Newton Stewart.

You can donate online by clicking the button below or call 01671 404924 to make your pledge and help Nathon acheive his target of £500.00.
