Competitors pitted themselves against a range of obstacles around the city during yesterday’s Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest event.

Around 1700 participants took part in the race, which included hay bales on the Royal Mile, an obstacle course on Calton Hill and a course weaving up and down the closes of the Old Town.

The 10km run is, despite the name, open to both men and women, and is one of a series of similar events held all over the UK.
