More than 700 people took part in the eighth David Lloyd Great Mile Run in Edinburgh on 7 May.

Organised by health and racquets club operator David Lloyd Leisure (DLL) in association with Nova International ? the company headed by Brendan Foster and responsible for the Great North Run ? the series of events are a campaign to get a ?million people running a million miles? for charity. So far, the Great Mile Runs have raised around ?25,000

The Edinburgh race was started by former Scottish rugby international Scott Hastings and runners included former Rangers and Scotland footballer and Question of Sport team captain, Ally McCoist.

Alongside the event, which was held in The Meadows, DLL showcased a virtual gym and mini tennis courts, giving runners the chance to see what its clubs offer.

?At a time when more and more people are starting to enter running events and with awareness of obesity at an all time high, DLL and Nova can combine their expertise to provide a massive new sporting achievement,? said a DLL spokesperson.

?A mile is a manageable distance for elite, fun and junior runners alike, so achieving mass participation of the event is a practical ambition.?

Great Mile Runs are also set to take place in Birmingham, London and Newcastle over the summer and in Portsmouth in October.
