DOGS, buggies, bikes, bacon rolls, sunshine and even a fly-past from the Red Arrows - our 1 in 100 runners encountered all of these at the weekend as they took on our 100-street challenge to raise funds and mental health awareness for Support in Mind Scotland.

Scotland rugby legend Scott Hastings and his wife Jenny have given fantastic backing to Support in Mind Scotland since they learned of our work and our annual 1 in 100 campaign, and they led a group of runners round 100 streets of Edinburgh on Sunday on a gloriously sunny morning.

Twenty-four hours earlier on the west coast, Anne Noble from the Troon Tortoises Running Club also undertook the challenge with her friends Ian and Caroline, running an impressive 16 miles round Troon and Barassie and then watching in a amazement as the Red Arrows whizzed overhead just after they had finished their 100th street!

The world-famous aerobatic team were in the area to headline an air show, and their appearance was the perfect way end to the run.

After completing the challenge, Anne, above, said: "Mission accomplished! We finished at noon and asked someone to take our photo - almost immediately there was a flypast from the Red Arrows! What a way to finish a race!"

Support in Mind Scotland CEO Frances Simpson and Fundraising Manager Colin Leslie joined the Hastings and their friends for the Edinburgh run on Sunday and enjoyed a run full of fun and camaraderie.

The 100 street-route, mapped out by Scott, stretched to around 7.5 miles around Warriston, Trinity, Wardie and Stockbridge.

We had canine companions, cyclists and chat along the way - and  a mum and her toddler in a buggy joined in for some of the route! There was also a rather unconventional stop for a bacon rolls at the 70-street mark, generously provided by friends who invited us into their home, but the stodge didn't stop the group going on to complete the century of streets near the Water of Leith in Stockbridge.

Scott and Jenny Hastings (and Parker) celebrate reaching the 100-street mark.

A mum pushing her toddler in a buggy join us for a stretch of the route near Inverleith Park.

Thirsty work! It wasn't just the runners who were feeling the heat on a beautiful morning in Edinburgh.

The theme from 'Rocky' was being sung as the runners conquered these steps near Stockbridge.
