More than 3,000 people battled the Tweed Valley at weekend in the “The Mighty Deerstalker” event.
Run by Rat Race, an adventure sports company, it's toughest off road run in the UK.
The event, which is now in it's 8th year, starts and finishes at the historic Traquair House, Innerleithen.
It features a mixture of steep ascents, water crossings, forest trails and various natural and man-made obstacles including “The Rack”, “The Scree” and “The Tunnel”.
People can chose to take part either as an individual or as a team. They can then choose between the 5K Deerstalker or the 10K Mighty Deerstalker course.
“The Mighty Deerstalker is one of our toughest events as competitors not only have to deal with a gruelling course, but they must do so in complete darkness. There was also a fantastic atmosphere on the run as competitors were dressed in tartan and tweed”.
Christine Grahame MSP has been reacting to the closure of Caerlee Mills in her constituency:
"I have been in touch with the Scottish Government to see if there is some way of ensuring that these skilled employees, who have taken years to develop their skills in textiles, can be redeployed within the borders.''
Liquidators had hoped to secure a new buyer for the mill which produces luxure cashmere goods.When no interest was expressed the decision to cease trading with immediate effect was made.
Three staff are being retained in the short term to assist winding down the business.
This is another damaging blow to the Borders textile industry which is being squeezed by competition from cheaper foreign imports.
Blair Nimmo of liquidators KPMG said:
Despite our best efforts to secure the sale of the mill we have been left with no option other than to cease all operations with immediate effect.
“Unfortunately 33 of the company’s 36 employees have been made redundant, with three staff being retained in the short term to assist in winding down the business.
“We would like to thank staff for their co-operation through this difficult process. "We will be working with employees to ensure that support to find alternative employment is available for all those who need it.”
