Countdown to Marathon By The Sea


Middleton & Associates Beat the Scotsman 5k



So you think you’ve seen everything well just wait to you meet the Angry Scotsman. At the newly named Middleton and Associates Beat the Scotsman 5K (Fun Run only this is NOT a chip or gun timed race)

Participants have to cross the finish line before Angus dressed in his tam & tartan finishes his 5 K . Angus is a highly untrained athlete that is highly trained in the Scottish language and has a long list of words and expressions that best describe Angus here are a few.

Clitter-Clatter – Particularly noisy and animated talk and chatter, a clattering noise, often confused and senseless conversation.

Gilly-Gawkie – a foolish young person, usually referring to a female.

Diddle-Daddle – To waste or take your time. A lot of faffing about with little to show for it.

Our Main stage performers will be Simonds Lions Caledonian Pipe Band and our special guests Saint Andrew SocietySimonds

So get ready for a morning of laughs, giggles and Scottish Humour never seen in Atlantic Canada
