People are being urged to put in the miles ahead of a new 10k event at this year's Wick Gala.

The gala week returns in 2022 from July 23-30, with the runs taking place on Saturday, July 30.

New for this year is a 10k event, in addition to the regular 5k and one-mile fun run.

Registration for the runs takes place on the day from 10am to 10.45am at the boating shed on Wick riverside, with the start at 11am.

Entry costs £5 for the 10k or 5k, and £2 for the fun run.

"We're hoping people will get their training shoes out to prepare for the friendly and fun running events," said Simon Harrison of North Highland Harriers.
