Take part in our 1k Bunny Fun Run on Sunday 07 April ~ family fun for everyone with two or four legs ~ yes dogs are welcome too!

Hop down early to collect your bunny ears and get your bunny nose and whiskers face painted, then line up at the starting line where the Easter Bunny will start the race. Taking place outside Dalkeith Palace, our family fun run is the perfect way to hop off all those chocolate eggs. With face painting and bunny ears for all taking part, we’ll also award prizes for the first bunny to cross the finish line.
