Plans are firmly in place for a fun night for all the family on Monday 21st July from 6 to 9pm during Scottish Week. We have been busy finalizing the plans for the night with the help of many other groups ,and organisations in the town. After the success of last year one of the main attractions will be the Peterhead Marinathon in aid of the Lifeboat and the Fishermens Mission, . This event which takes place at 7pm from the Marina Carpark, and is a 3k walk, jog or run for all ages, children under the age of 13 years must be accompanied by an adult. Registration takes place on the night from Peterhead Sailing Club at 6pm to 6.45pm and only costs £2. Everyone completing the Marinathon will receive an medal, goodybag, and will be entered into a free prize draw for a bicycle, ipod or watch which will take place just before the Marinathon starts at 7pm. Only 300 places are available for the Marinathon, so tell your freinds to get there early to avoid disappointment.
To coincide with the Marinathon a fancy dress competition will be held in the Maritime and Heritage centre at 6.15pm (nautical theme preferred ie pirate, fisherman, fish wifie, lifeboat crew or even a lobster). All children entering the fancy dress competition, will also receive a free entry into the Marinathon. From 6.30pm till 7pm in the Marina Basin a rescue demonstration will also take place by Peterhead Lifeboat. After the Marinathon is completed at approximately 7.45pm a Karate demonstration will take place in front of theMaritime and Heritage Centre by Peterhead Karate Club.
