Grab your running shoes as entries are now open for the Great Aberdeen Run.
Returning to the city for its third year, the event will take place on August 25 next year.
Around 5,000 people are expected to take part in the event which comprises a 10k, family run and half marathon.
The traffic-free routes will start and finish on Union Street and take in the modern and historic areas of the city including Castlegate, the Beach Ballroom and Brig O’Balgownie. The half marathon also includes a section through Seaton Park before heading past St Machar’s Cathedral and along the cobbled streets of Old Aberdeen.
Eric Wilkins, from The Great Run Company, said: “This summer people of all running abilities travelled from across the UK and 15 other nations including Australia, Kazakhstan and the United States to take part in the Great Aberdeen Run.
“The event transformed the city into a celebration as thousands of spectators lined the course in support and an estimated £400,000 was raised for charity.”
CEO of Simplyhealth, Romana Abdin, added: “We’re looking forward to being back in Aberdeen. Having the 10k, half marathon and family run on the same day makes this a unique event and once again we’ll be supporting runners every step of the way.”
