PARAS HANDY FOR BIG RACE.
About 30 members of 4 Para, the Reserve Battalion of the Parachute Regiment, will wear their full military kit and heavy packs for the 10k and half-marathon courses at the event in Glasgow in October.
Warrant Officer Davy McLellan said: "We are always looking at training challenges for the soldiers to push their fitness levels and the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run is a great way for them to have fun while doing this."
Organisers are hoping 25,000 runners will take part.
