We're very pleased to hear from the organisers of this year's Dumpling Duathlon that the event around the village of Gartocharn, where Lomond Energy are based, has raised an impressive £1700. As in 2010 Lomond Energy were a core sponsor of the event which involved 160 people undertaking a 4km run or walk followed by a 10km cycle. Very much a family oriented duathlon the age of participants ranged from 6 months to 70 years and we are pleased to say the entire Lomond Energy team took part in driving rain and very muddy conditions (photos to follow) and were still smiling at the finish line. Funds raised will be shared between MacMillan Cancer Support and Gartocharn Primary School. The name 'Dumpling' comes from the local name describing the shape of Duncryne Hill on the south side of Gartocharn.
