12-year-old Sean Kelt of Ross County AC completed the second annual Dingwall Hydrotherapy Puffin Pool Santa Hat 5K in 20:22 to finish first on Sunday (14 December). There was a bumper turnout at the event with competitors braving stormy conditions on the new course.
Their festive frolicking was suitably rewarded with participants being given mince pies, and mulled fruit juice and wine after the race.
Sean was closely followed by his pacer Simon Bath in 20:25. First female across the finish line was junior Kilda Lynch in 24:40. Fastest senior female was Rebekah Bryan in 26:10.
Thomas Mathieson from Ross County AC said: "We mustn't forget a special mention for a very bleary and red-eyed (anonymous) mum, who faced the chilling wind, rain and the morning after the night, before to run with her Princess! The organisers, Ross County AC, would like to thank everyone for supporting this local charity event and to all of the volunteers for making it a successful day"
