Christmas fun in Falkirk district: Chasing the turkey in the Helix Park

Lots of brave runners stepped out on Sunday morning to chase a turkey, well someone dressed as a turkey, round the Helix.

The popular event was again organised by Falkirk Community Trust and this year they partnered with UK Running Series to offer different distances.

People of all ages were able to run, jog or walk a 3km, 5km or 10km route around the park – in pursuit of that elusive turkey.

There were also prizes up for grabs for the best dressed, best group costume and those with the most festive cheer.
