MORE than 150 runners pulled on their trainers for a double fundraising event along the banks of the Forth and Clyde Canal.

The annual 10k and 5k event, organised by Lenzie-based charity Deafblind Scotland, was held last month and set off from the Leisuredrome, in Bishopbriggs.

Former East Dunbartonshire Provost Eric Gotts started both races, and despite some torrential rain and hailstones the event was a great success.

Coming in first in the 10k was Claire Couper, from Central AC, second was Andrew Hegarty, and third was Kirsty Husband, from Garscube Harriers.

Both Claire and Andrew Hegarty won a £50 gift voucher from Santander.

Deafblind Scotland would like to thank Springburn Harriers and Kirkintilloch Olympians for their support to make the event happen.

Claire Couper, Andrew Hegarty, Kirsty Husband, and Michelle Sandison, from Springburn Harriers, who took sixth place, are pictured above.
