People in Dumbarton and the Vale are being urged to reduce their stroke risk by taking part in 5K and 10K runs starting next month.

The Stroke Association Scotland says taking part could reduce people’s risk of stroke by a fifth.

Participants in the Resolution Run campaign will not only improve their health and reduce their risk of stroke, they will also raise vital funds for the charity’s work.

The charity has organised three runs across Scotland, including Glasgow, from 24 February to 10 March.

The events are open to all ages and abilities, and participants can walk, jog or run their way to the finish line. There is a £16 entry fee.

All runners will receive a technical running t-shirt and medal.
