IS IT A BIRD? Is it a plane? No, it’s just 120 festive runners enjoying the North Berwick Santa Run on the Sunday before Christmas.

The runners donned their festive outfits, from Santa to reindeer and a Christmas tree, and took part in the charity event on the beach.

Clear skies on the day made for excellent running conditions.

People of all ages took part in one of three events: two-kilometre, five-kilometre and 10-kilometre races.

Santa and Mrs Claus were on hand to start each race, with run times staggered across four half-hour intervals to allow social distancing to be maintained.

The event was raising money for Just Wheels, a Scottish charity promoting mobility for people with disabilities in the Tobora region of Tanzania.

Co-organiser Cath Brookes, who is also treasurer for Just Wheels, said that the £1,000 raised by all of the participants would be enough to pay for four wheelchairs to be made and maintained locally in Africa to assist the individuals who needed them.

Santa Run organisers Cath and Saartje Drijver said they were both grateful to everyone who took part and to the marshals who made it possible.

The event was a success and enjoyed by all who took part. It followed all necessary coronavirus guidance from both scottishathletics and the Scottish Government.

The winner of the two-kilometre race was Cera Wright in a time of eight minutes and 26 seconds; Angus Wright won the five-kilometre race with a time of 17 minutes and 20 seconds; and Andrew Fraser won the 10-kilometre race in 38 minutes and 49 seconds.
