Scenes of limbering, stretching and warming up are not only being played out across local gyms this summer.
Pagan Osborne’s offices in Anstruther, St Andrews and Cupar are hotbeds of fitness and exercise as 15 members of staff get ready to embark on a gruelling physical challenge to raise funds for CHAS (Children’s Hospice Association Scotland).
The legal, financial and property firm is preparing for a 12-hour Beat the Borders event on August 30.
It comprises a 40-mile cycle, an 18-mile hike and adventure challenges, starting and finishing in Melrose and looping through areas such as Kelso and Roxburgh.
The team hopes to raise £5500 – beating last year’s total of £5300. All funds raised will go directly to CHAS to support the vital work it does providing hospices services for babies, children, young people and their families in Scotland.
