The Dunvegan Castle 10k was won by Kenny MacGruer on Saturday 23 March.

Kenny is from Caithness-based North Highland Harriers.  He completed the run in 37 minutes and 59.6 seconds.  

This year saw a record amount of 154 entries.  Organisers commented that the race was held earlier in the year, prior to the Castle opening.  

Entrants were piped to the start line by 11-year-old Seonaidh Macleod.

Alun Beckett took second place in 39 minutes and 13.6 seconds.  He was followed by Chris James who completed the race in 40 minutes and 40.7 seconds.

A new addition to this year's run was the Griegs Seafood 5k race.  Aimed at all abilities, the race was won by 13-year-old Alex Jamieson, who completed the run in 21 minutes and 46.8 seconds.  

The first female to complete the 5k was Heather Oakley.  This turned out to be Heather's first race, which she completed with a time of 27 minutes and 47.2 seconds - in a pair of pyjamas!
