Four sisters who survived breast cancer were among thousands to take part in a cancer charity fundraising race.
Carole Bennett, Jane McCaffrey, Ellen Ferrie and Susan Pyle sounded horns to start Cancer Research UK's Race for Life in Dundee before taking part themselves.
They were running in memory of their mother Victoria, who died of cancer in 2000, and to raise funds for the charity.
More than 8,000 women took part in Race for Life events in Dundee and Edinburgh, raising money to fund research into 200 types of cancer.
Ms Bennett, 47, from Dundee, said: "What an amazing day it's been. The atmosphere was electric and my sisters and I have had so much fun. We were also taking part in memory of our mum, who died after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
"I know she would have been proud to know that we were doing our bit in the fight against cancer."
The 47-year-old has beaten breast cancer twice, having first been diagnosed with it in 1995 when her mother was undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer. She was then diagnosed with breast cancer again while her sister Jane, 44, was going through treatment for the disease.
Their sister Ellen, 38, was the next to be diagnosed with breast cancer and in 2008 their sister Susan, 43, was diagnosed with the disease.
The Edinburgh Race for Life event was started by breast cancer survivor Pamela Adams, 49, and her nine-year-old daughter Katie. The charity is now urging those who took part to send in their sponsorship money.
Race for Life spokeswoman Gillian Forsyth said: "I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has taken part in Race for Life events. Cancer Research UK doesn't receive any government funding for its life-saving work, so the money people raise through Race for Life is crucial to the charity being able to support the pioneering work of doctors, nurses and scientists who are fighting cancer on all fronts."
