A total of 542 people took to the Southern Upland Way at the weekend to raise money for three separate charities in the first Hearts and Heroes Challenge.
Among the participants was Chris Moon who lost his right arm and leg in a landmine clearing accident in Mozambique. He has now completed several marathons and challenges around the world.
It is hoped the Hearts and Heroes event can be staged again in years to come and generate more funds for its chosen charities.
Among those taking part in the event from St Mary's Loch to Melrose was Olympic athlete Steve Cram.
Funds from the event went to two sporting charities and the veterans charity Poppyscotland.
Organisers hope that up to £100,000 will have been raised as a result of the 29-mile challenge.
All the competitors taking part in testing conditions were rewarded with a medal in recognition of their participation.
