Here's what races are available for Great Scottish Tattie Run
Men are asked to haul a 20kg bag (just over three stones in old money) and women 10kg at the Great Scottish Tattie Run.
There are relay options (4 x 400 metres) and anyone considering that option will face serious opposition from teams of army cadets, pub teams, gym members and football supporters.
The Great Scottish Tattie Run is sponsored by Branston, a leading supplier of fresh potatoes and the UK’s largest grower of organic potatoes. And while there is a medal on offer at this event the major prize is that you get to take home the potatoes.
There is also a 'Spud and Spoon' race for kids or adults. The whole occasion is played for laughs so if you get along make sure to take lots of photos and catch the 'potato carriers' in the most ludicrous poses.
