A record turn out of 68 people took park in the 5k Fun Run in Stonehaven over the festive period.

With storms battering Stonehaven and the race organiser unwell, chances of the race going ahead were looking slim at 11pm on Boxing Day.

There was 12 runners on December 27 that took part that were under 16.

The organisers would like to thank all the volunteers who helped.

Denise Goodlad from Stonehaven Running Club said: “It’s safe to say our resources weren’t quite geared up for this number and we encountered some problems along the way from which lessons will be learned for next year! We were particularly delighted to welcome 12 runners under 16 years of age, all of whom should be proud of their achievements last Sunday.

With the support of a calm team of volunteers we produced a set of race results, refreshments were served and the prizegiving was held back in the warm pavilion.”

Congratulations to category winners Kat Oatey, Steven Watters, Darcy 
McNeill, Jo Thom and Michael Barker.

Denise added: “Special mention to Emma Swanson whose race number was missed in the finish line melee but we believe produced an amazing race time at the tender age of 10 years old. Stonehaven Running Club thanks all volunteers and race participants and we hope to welcome you back next year when we will be geared up to accommodate the growing numbers.”
