One of Kirriemuir’s top charity fundraisers has fallen victim to the poor weather.
Organisers have been forced to cancel the 24-hour race the Cancer Research UK Relay for Life due to safety concerns.
The biennial event was scheduled to take place in a field near the town on August 10 and 11 but the wet weather, and poor forecast over the weekend, has meant the event has been cancelled.
Organisers remained positive the race would go ahead up until a site visit on the morning of August 9.
Around 450 participants from across Scotland were expected to take part.
Rhona Guild, secretary and vice-chairman of the event, said: “This is a safety first decision. We have taken advice from others and have been in contact with Angus Council over the past few days.
“We are very sorry that we have had to make this decision and I would like to thank everyone for the huge amount of work that has already gone into preparing for the race.”
She said a mini-event may still take place next weekend, but it was dependent on the response from participants.
