Details of Aberdeen road closures have been released ahead of a major running event next month.
The BHGE 10k Running Festival will take place around Aberdeen and in the beach area on Sunday May 5.
The scenic race will take runners from the start line on Beach Boulevard towards Waterloo Quay and the harbour, then the length of Beach Esplanade.
Competitors will run down King Street just south of the Bridge of Don before passing Pittodrie and King’s Links golf course. The finish line is at the Beach Ballroom.
A number of parking and traffic restrictions will be in place on the day of the race and additional crowds are expected as it takes place on the May bank holiday weekend.
Links Road, between the ballroom and Urquhart Road, will be closed from 6am next Saturday and 2pm on May 5.

Accommodation Road is closed between Beach Esplanade and Golf Road from 6am on May 4 to 2pm on May 5. Beach Esplanade, Pittodrie Street, Links Road, Wellington Street, Commerce Street and Miller Street will also be shut to motorists.
And there will be no traffic access to Regent Walk, Seaton Crescent, Seaton Drive and Seaton Walk while the event is ongoing.
Keith Gerrard, Sport Aberdeen’s director of health and active communities, said: “The support that the race receives each year is consistently inspiring and as always, the run up to the event is a very exciting time for all involved and it is a pleasure to see the joint efforts of the community, charities and organisers pay off, come the big day.
We’d like to thank our participants, spectators and sponsors for their support and look forward to seeing them on race day.”
Organisers have also launched a drive to make the event more environmentally friendly by cutting the number of single-use plastic bottles and introducing biodegradable bags.
