Thousands of competitors and spectators created a colourful spectacle for the annual Inverness Half Marathon and 5k races.
With a total entry of 2940, the 2020 event on Sunday was hailed a huge success by organisers.
Event director Malcolm Sutherland said: “There was a great buzz throughout the day, with runners from around the world ascending on the Highland capital to take part. All ages and abilities were represented and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves, whether they were running for fun, to set a new personal best or to raise funds for charity.”
VisitScotland’s director of events Paul Bush added: “With a large number travelling to stunning Inverness and the Highlands, we can expect to see strong benefits for the area, paired with wonderful efforts for charity.”
Official race charities included SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health), Alzheimer Scotland, The Archie Foundation, Highland Hospice and Marie Curie, among many others.
