Runners dressed as characters from hit movie Avatar joined sumo wrestlers, a chicken and an egg and a basket of fruit, who all helped raise a record £50,000 for charity.

Around 1,000 participants completed the largest ever Meadows Marathon yesterday.

Patryk Gierjatowicz finished first, finishing the 13-mile course in one hour, 16 minutes and 6 seconds. Nicola Duncan won the women's race in one hour, 23 minutes and 26 seconds.

Joe Robertson won the five km race, while Catherine Ferry was the fastest woman.
