Over 3,000 people have participated in the Detox since it started in 2004. Scotland's first 10K event of the year has grown in popularity and is now a well known event on the Scottish circuit.
The Lumphanan Community Recreation Association was set up in 2001 as a voluntary local initiative to improve the sporting and recreational facilities in the village itself. Our primary objective was the transformation of a derelict tennis court situated in the village park into a modern all-weather multi-sports court.
Local fund raising events, a generous donation from BP and grants from Aberdeenshire Council and the Marr Area Partnership took our funds to almost £30k. This enabled us to purchase the materials required but there was not enough to allow us to hand over the entire project to a 'professional' contractor. Therefore, a team of dedicated and skilled residents got together and re-built the multi-sports court; completing the work in late summer 2005. Had the work been sub-contracted externally the total cost would have been in the region of £60k.
The Association continues to raise funds through membership, court fees, the Lumphanan Detox 10K and sponsorship, in order to maintain the court and to be able to replace the all-weather surface in a few years, ensuring the continuity of availability of this facility to the residents of Lumphanan.
The surface was refreshed in mid-2016, to extend its life.
