Lothian Running Club duo Alan Robertson and Shona Young have just completed the Scottish Ultra Marathon Series (SUMS).

And last Saturday they picked up their prizes at the annual SUMS Awards Ceremony in Glasgow.

The series comprises independently organised Scottish ultra marathons to form a season-long championship.

A minimum of three races must be completed to be included in the championship points table.

At the end of the season, the top runners in the overall championship as well as the age categories, for both male and memale, are decided by the sum of their top three points for the season.

Alan competed in five events and finished in first place in the Super Veteran 60+ category while Shona, who ran four, was placed fifth overall in the female category and second in F40 age group. Shona was also third in the Short Series of races.
