More than 650 people - a significant number from Ross-shire - took part in the run, helping to raise over £70,000 for Cancer Research UK.

And there were many group and individual highlights on the day, with everyone who took part a winner in our eyes!

Lisa Adams, Cancer Research UK’s spokeswoman in Scotland, said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who took part in Race for Life Inverness. It was a fantastic day at Race for Life Inverness, full of emotion, courage, tears, laughter and hope as people celebrated the lives of those dear to them who have survived cancer and remembered loved ones lost to the disease. “
