If the Olympic spirit is finally catching up with you and you want to take a challenge of your own this weekend, it is still possible to enter the popular Scottish Gas 5K and 10K event on Sunday (5 August). Race organisers will accept late entries up to 9.30am on the morning of the event and you can register at Scottish Gas HQ on Waterfront Avenue, Granton, Edinburgh.
The majority of the course is along the seafront from Granton to Silverknowes and offers a fast flat course. A technical t-shirt is included in the entry fee. Full details at Edinburgh AC's website.
