ATHLETES of all ages took to the hills of Galashiels on Friday for the annual Rowan Boland Memorial Race.

Around 150 runners took part helping to raise almost £1,000 for the Memorial Trust.

Selkirk's Chris Miller broke the Meigle Park tape in the gruelling 10k race.

Gala Harrier Tony Lunn turned back the clock to take the silver medal with Sean Pringle finishing fast for third.

Debbie Patterson won the Ladies' 10k from Selkirk's Sonya Linton with Myra Owen claiming bronze.

Gala Harriers dominated the 5k race with Gregor Collins setting a blistering pace to break the tape.

Team-mate Jake Shepherd crossed the line in second with Isla Paterson racing home for first girl and third overall.

David Boland, chair of RMBT, said: "Many thanks to Gala Harriers for all their help in organising the Meigle Run as well as Gala Cricket Club for hosting the event.

"We also need to thank Galashiels Rotary Club for providing marshals, The Trophy Guy for donating the Fun Run Trophies and last but not least the runners who came along and took part."

Kristin Boland of the Trust presented trophies to the winners.

Since the races began in 2011 they have raised many thousands of pounds for the Trust.
