With only three weeks to go until they tackle the West Highland Way, the Teviothead Trekkers have already raised £2,000 in sponsorship.
The group of ten are doing the walk in aid of Motor Neurone Disease and Macmillan Cancer Support and have been getting in plenty of practice, walking all over the Borders, collecting cash with different fund-raisers.
They are Pat Douglas, Donald and Sandra Knox, Gill Francombe, Sam Blyth, Fenella Pow, Caroline Tullie, Ronnie, Julia and Katie Templeman with John Tullie transporting the bags and running in from the other end to meet them.
Anyone wishing to sponsor the group can still do so or go online at virginmoneygiving.com/team/teviotheadtrekkers. People can also see where their training has taken them on their blog: Teviothead Trekkers.
