A cheque for ￡£650 has been presented to CLAN Stonehaven from organisers of the 2014 Stoney Half Marathon.
£1 from each entry went to the chosen charity and the rest was made up of donations from the runners.
The 2015 event will take place on Sunday, July 5.
A spokesperson said: ‘‘This will be its 30th year. Entries have now been open for a month and we already have nearly 100 runners signed up.
‘‘As well as the normal medal for every entrant we are also hoping to hand out technical t-shirts to all runners.’’
