Two annual cancer research fundraising events were declared “muddy brilliant” on Sunday.
The Pretty Muddy and Race for Life events took place in the grand scenery of Camperdown country park.
More than 2,000 participants walked, ran, sprinted, leapt and splashed their way through various courses, all with one goal in mind – to raise as much money as they could for Cancer Research.
This year the Race for Life was started by powerhoop expert Caroline Stephen.
Caroline, who has survived breast cancer, and her group of 10 friends added an extra challenge to this year’s race by completing the 5km route twirling powerhoops round their waists.
Caroline, 49, said: “It was a shock when I was told I had cancer.
“It took a few days for the news to really hit me and when it did I broke down. But I was lucky.
“I had amazing support from my family right from the start and I actually met a lot of fabulous friends during the time I was being treated.
“I loved powerhooping from the first lesson, even though I couldn’t even do it properly at first.
“Powerhooping took my mind off things. It toned me up, got me feeling better about myself and even helped me smile again.”
The Pretty Muddy event saw women complete a 5km track, complete with obstacles and splattered in mud.
Gill Coupar, 29, a media sales consultant, joined 15 of her friends to complete the course under the team name Lochie’s Ladies.
She said: “The race went very well and was very good fun.
“As a group we were all responsible for raising our own money, but I think we have collectively raised more than £1,000.
“We were all running for Lochie Wightman, a young Dundee boy who is currently undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma.”
