Hundreds of runners from across Scotland assembled in Denny yesterday afternoon to take part in the Strathcarron 10K road race.

The annual event raises thousands of pounds for the hospice in Fankerton and sees participants complete a scenic course through Stirlingshire, beginning at Denny High School in Herbertshire.

Just under 400 runners took part this year, a slight decrease from 2012.

The first runner home was Brian Turner of Falkirk Victoria Harriers athletics club with a time of 34 minutes and 32 seconds. Second was Edinburgh runner Jamie Crawford on 36.18, and third was Falkirk Vics member Anthony Devlin with 37.20.

The first lady home was Jennifer Clark of Glasgow club Bellahouston Harriers, with a time of 40.35.

Greenfaulds High School pupil Keiran Brass was the first under-16 athlete to complete the course with a time of 42.40.

More pictures of the event will be published in this week’s edition of The Falkirk Herald, out on Thursday.
