ATHLETES from across the north of Scotland took part in the annual Nairn 10k on Sunday afternoon.

Almost 300 people took part in the event where runners ran through the streets of the town.

Participants at the event were welcomed to the starting line at High Street by Nairn and District Pipe Band who marched through the town centre before the race began.

In the men’s race, James Wilson celebrated winning the Nairn 10K for the first time in his career.

The Moray Road Runners athlete was too quick for the chasing pack as he crossed the finishing line in a time of 31 minutes and 57 seconds.

He was 32 seconds ahead of James Tole of Metro Aberdeen in second place who finished in 32:29 with Shaun Cumming of Highland Hill Runners third in a time of 32:36.

Teenager Caitlyn Heggie was women’s champion as she powered her way to victory to claim her first Nairn 10k title of her career.

The 17-year-old Inverness Harriers athlete claimed victory by 16 seconds as she recorded a winning time of 36:09.

Halina Rees of Highland Hill Runners took the silver medal with a time of 36:25 with last year’s champion Jenny Bannerman of Inverness Harriers in third place in a time of 37:14.
