Weekend runners flocked to Union Street to take on the one mile dash


Organised by registered charity Sport Aberdeen, the race has become a summer staple and forerunner to the annual Celebrate Aberdeen Parade.

The race, which was divided into three categories, saw runners dashing down the Granite City’s centre to be met by cheering crowds.

Commenting, Sport Aberdeen’s Director of Business Development Jill Franks said:

“The Union Street Mile always attracts large numbers and this year was no exception. Each of the three race categories saw a brilliant turn-out while the streets were lined with cheering spectators.

“I would like to thank all the volunteers who helped on the day and Deeside Mineral Water who supplied the water that kept our runners hydrated.

“Sport Aberdeen is committed to inspiring people of all ages to take part in sport. We are proud to be part of local events which celebrate our city and we look forward to next year’s Union Street dash!”
