The weather stayed fair as hundreds of people descended on Kirkcaldy’s Beveridge Park at the weekend to take part in the Stroke Association’s Resolution Run.

Held every year and with events throughout the UK, it is a chance for supporters to join together and raise funds for the charity.

People of all ages pulled on their trainers and ran, jogged, walked and danced their way around their chosen distance - either 5k or 10k - that weaved around the park to help raise as much money as possible for the charity.

After an upbeat and motivating warm up, it was time for the participants to take to the start line and as the klaxon sounded, the crowd of runners headed off towards the finish line.

A spokesman for Stroke Association said: “A big thank you to those that turned out at the Beveridge Park for our fundraiser. It is always fantastic to see so many people turn out for our events and it was also great to see so many wearing our charity t-shirts. Those that take part sometimes have their own reason for running the Resolution Run, and others just want to help the charity in anyway that they can.

“Whatever their reasons, we are so grateful for their donations and can’t thank them enough.”
