A massive crowd poured onto Campbeltown’s streets and cheered MOK runners from start to finish.

MOK Run committee member, 10K runner, Janet Scott-Dodd said it was probably the largest crowd of spectators she had ever seen.

A fresh wind and scorching sun did not stop one record falling. Matthew Turner won the 10K and set himself a new personal best.

It was not all about winners and there were many heroic performances with the finish line a primary goal as well as snaffling a Danish pastry.

The half-marathon’s furthest travelled, air guitaring ‘rockers’ from Milan, completed their race in large wigs and one carried a blow-up plastic guitar.

Special entry, Peter Waugh, completed his 13th half marathon in as many months in memory of his mother, who listed Kintyre among her favourite places.

The back of Waugh’s running vest listed his 13 races and said: ‘For mum and the heroic staff at St Joseph’s hospice – thank you!’
