Action for Children Scotland fundraiser, Carol McKinlay, hopes runners will use the opportunity to raise money for the charity, which supports vulnerable children and young people.

She said: “Last year, 90 women from across the country ran for Action for Children Scotland, raising almost £7000.

“This year we hope 150 women will race for Action for Children – and we want to hear from runners from Edinburgh.”
