A 24-HOUR relay for charity is back at Lochore Meadows this year and is open to all abilities.

The Meedies Running Club's challenge takes place over July 7/8.

The event starts at 7pm on the Friday, with the 7pm finish line the following night, Saturday.

Funds raised from the relay will be donated to local causes and collections will take place on the day for the local foodbank and food pantries.

The 5k route is multi-terrain and those taking part can test themselves over a variety of distances.

The club said: "Participants can challenge themselves to cover any distance ranging from 5k upwards to 50k and beyond based on your own ability.

"Test yourself with a 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon or ultra distance at your own time and pace, covering as many laps as you choose, around the designated 5k route, taking in the beautiful scenery.

"The event is open to all abilities, and will see people running/jogging/walking around the 5k route for the entire 24-hour period."
