Around 3,000 people have taken on the hills, mud and rivers around Innerleithen in the 10th Mighty Deerstalker obstacle race.

Similar races have become more and more popular in recent years but organisers say this one was Scotland's first. Racers take on a 5K version in the daylight or wear head torches for the 10K in the dark.
