A GROUP of Whitby runners put their best foot forward as they took part in the Scarborough 10km fun run.

Members of the Fitness Machine gym running club, took part in the run, which sees entrants travelling from the Scarborough Spa Complex, along Marine Drive to the Sea Life Centre, and then all the way back again.

Owner of the Skinner Street gym Claire Fowler said: “We have a group that goes out running on a Monday.

“Some of them have just started running and wanted a bit of a challenge, so they’ve been in training for it for quite a few weeks.

“Some of them did it for charity, while others did it to achieve their own goals.

“Some even did it in fancy dress.”

The running group leaves the Silver Street gym at 5.15pm every Monday and anyone who is interested in taking part should contact the Fitness Machine gym on (01947) 821755.
