Well at least we can tell you about the 5K part of it…..the 10K just got under way an hour ago and there will be runners all over the city centre until about 15.30 when it is anticipated that the area around Holyrood will be cleared, and the traffic diversions will be ended.

You will forgive us for not hanging about any longer to get any more photographs, but the weather simply could not have been wetter this morning and we were anxious to get back to have  a hot shower and warm up!

Michael Hudson (268) crossed the line in first place with a time of 18:10. All the results are posted on the website so you can check for yourselves how well you did if you were taking part. A great effort goes into the organisation of the event and it is a pity that the weather was not a little better today.
