AN Easter Ross parkrun has pulled the plug on today's scheduled event due to the weather forecast.
Parkruns are regular weekly 5km timed runs, typically staged around the country on Saturdays at 9.30am.
Alness Parkrun is amongst hundreds across the country.
The plug was pulled on today's scheduled event yesterday as a precaution.
Event organisers said they were 'gutted' to cancel again but took a precautionary approach after seeing the forecast. It comes on the back of some torrential rain in recent days.
Putting a positive spin on it they flagged the possibility of an unexpected lie in or a trip to join the alternative parkrun at Torvean in Inverness. Organisers if that event confirmed yesterday it is good to go for 9.30am.
