Events

The Friends of ANCHOR fundraising team organises numerous events throughout the year, raising vital funds for North-east cancer care.

Scroll on to read more about these events, which include professionally-choreographed catwalk shows, an annual golf tournament and black tie dinner, inflatable obstacle course and a biennial masked ball.

In addition, Friends of ANCHOR is affiliated with a number of well-established events such as BHGE 10k, Great Aberdeen Run, Glack Attack and Intellicore Red Run, which are open to all.

Find your stride

Throughout the year there are many opportunities for keen runners and beginners alike, to don a red T-shirt and pound the pavements. Soak up the atmosphere as you run in red through the city centre for the BHGE 10k or Great Aberdeen Run – or clock up some miles in the countryside as you tackle the Kiltwalk or Intellicore Red Run. Fancy something a little different? Why not check out Glack Attack – a mud run jam packed with obstacles.

Annual events

Friends of ANCHOR is proud to present a varied calendar of events for every season, from our showstopping Courage on the Catwalk and Brave weekend at the iconic Beach Ballroom, to ANCHOR Wipeout – a family friendly day of fun with a competitive edge.

Each year the charity also hosts two skydives in St Andrews, and June sees us organise our annual Gala Golf Event – a stableford tournament followed by a gala evening at The Chester Hotel. Every second year, Duthie Park becomes the setting for our spectacularly themed Masked Ball.
