THE brother of Frightened Rabbit's star Scott Hutchison will run the Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run in Glasgow next weekend in memory of the singer.

Grant Hutchison, 34, will take on the half marathon to raise awareness of mental health and his brother’s death.

The body of his 36-year-old brother was recovered at Port Edgar near South Queensferry in May.

His family previously said in a statement following the death that Scott bravely battled with his own issues for many years.

The brothers were part of the Frightened Rabbit where Grant plays drums and Scott, the founding member, was a vocalist and guitarist.

Grant, from Glasgow, said: “Scott was a wonderful person who touched so many people and changed so many lives through his song writing and through his personal relationships with people. He is an inspiration to me and I always strived to be better in what I did to try and get close to his level of creativity.

“Scott struggled daily with depression and anxiety which in the end led to him taking his own life. His feelings of being a burden and not being there for those he loved in the end got too much for him and this was seemingly his only way out.

“His death has devastated my family. We deal with the loss only a day at a time. It's really the only way to get through it at the moment.

“I am going to counselling and I have an incredible group of friends and my fiancée Jaye has been the one thing keeping me going.

“The band has also been changed forever. We are all good friends though and are doing our best to be there for each other and will do all we can to keep Scott's legacy alive and make sure the voice he had does not go silent.”

Grant will be running the half marathon on September 30 together with four of his friends.

The Bank of Scotland Great Scottish Run features both 10k and half marathon distances and welcomes thousands of runners to the city of Glasgow every year.

Both events start in George Square and from there participants are taken on a tour of the city past a selection of Glasgow’s finest venues and buildings, as well as crossing over the River Clyde before runners head back for their grandstand finish on Glasgow Green.

The half marathon is now closed, entries are still available for the 10k distance.
