Over a hundred took part in inaugural race.
More than a hundred people took part in the inaugural Rangers Alderman’s Ascent on Thursday 7 July.
67 juniors began their race at Binn Green while 52 adults set off from Churchill to brave the hills of Greenfield, including Pots and Pans.
Darren Graham, who organised the event to raise money for next year’s Rangers U15s tour to France, said it went well.
“It was a good turnout for a mid-week race and especially a first race,” he said. “The weather could have been kinder, but it could have been a lot worse as well!
“Everyone commented on a great event and Julie’s soup, served to the seniors after the race.
“The feedback was that it was a cracking route. Hopefully it’s now going to grow and grow.”
It’s thought the event will have raised £1,000 by the time all the sponsorship has been collected.
Former Rangers first teamers Jason Wilkes and Danny Attersall were among those who took the challenge on.

A provisional date for next year’s event is Thursday, July 6, 2017.
