About 1,500 competitors descended on the Borders for a night trail run event which had to be cancelled last year due to bad weather.

The Mighty Deerstalker in Innerleithen succumbed to the snow in 2018.

Last year's entries were automatically deferred to this year so organisers expected good numbers to take up the challenge on Saturday.

The tweed-wearing runners donned head torches to race through a series of obstacles in the event.
