Thousands are expected to turn out for the popular BHGE 10k Running Festival tomorrow.
Kicking off at the Race Village on Beach Boulevard, the race route will take runners out to Waterloo Quay, before running the length of Beach Esplanade, through Bridge of Don, Pittodrie Park and finishing at King’s Links golf course.
A number of traffic restrictions will be in place around the city and beach area this weekend for the event.
Last year, 4,000 runners took to the streets of the city alongside wheelchair participants and children in the 2k race.
Jill Franks is director of business development at Sport Aberdeen.
She 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.
“It’s 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.”
Residents have been advised there will be parking and traffic restrictions in place on roads around the route.

This year, organisers also hope to make it one of the most environmentally friendly in Scotland.
Tomorrow’s race will see a reduced number of single-use plastics in use, smaller water bottles at the water stations to reduce waste and biodegradable goody-bags with fewer plastic items inside them.
Jill said: “Every year we strive to be more environmentally friendly.
“We understand the importance of reducing our plastic use and are making positive changes to help make this year’s race one of the most sustainable yet.”
Lesley McMullan from BHGE said the organisation is “proud of the way we invent, develop and deploy technologies that are more environmentally friendly than ever before”.
