The event has always been hailed as a way to promote mental health and wellbeing with participants asked to walk or run the 5k or 10k route.

And, as our selection of photos show, it has become a family affair with all ages taking part and celebrating their achievements with tea and cake in the hall afterwards.

Mind Your Head chairwoman Shona Manson said: “It was superb to see so many folk supporting the event again and we have got the ‘real runners’ and you have the mams and dads and granddads and parents with pushchairs. It is a real family event.”

This year was also an opportunity for Mind Your Head to raise awareness of their proposed support service. Among the runners was Anouska Civico, who is working to develop services. She said: “It provides real proof that people are behind our proposed developments and support these important changes.”
