“We are absolutely delighted to have passed the halfway mark of our £5000 fundraising target already thanks to local support and members of our community and we hope that many more donations come through to help us reach our goal. We also can’t wait to see people down here over the weekend to cheer us on and enjoy some great food from the Green Gannet Food Co.”

GrizzFit has created a space based around a community of athletes that support and encourage each other. Barry McGeachie joined the gym from day one and soon developed a passion for the style of training and community within the gym.

After doing various events in the past Barry approached Tom & Jen to put forward the idea of raising money for charity, from here the plans developed into what is now the 24 in 24 event.
