500 on the finish line for 5k

The 2012 Womens Cancer Challenge 5k, which took place last Saturday, became the biggest sporting event to take place in the Western Isles.

More than 500 people ran, walked or jogged their way to the finish line in the Castle Grounds to help raise money for the Lewis branch of Cancer Research UK.

In all 505 women took part - quite a jump from last year’s 350 - proving that the 2012 ‘Bring a Friend’ theme certainly got more people up and running.

Well done to everyone who took part.
