Shoppers in the city centre were given a glimpse into what thousands of runners will have to look forward to during next month’s Great Aberdeen Run.
A section of the city’s bustling street was transformed into a Great Run finish line – with gantry, a pounding soundtrack and a stretch of running track – where passers-by were encouraged to take on a sprint finish to win prizes.

Thousands of runners of all ages and abilities will take on the challenge of a half marathon, 10K or family run on a closed-road course that features some of Aberdeen’s most iconic locations.
