Hundreds of runners took part in the Accrington 10k road race’s 30th anniversary event.
The popular Accrington Road Runners event, which attracts runners from across the North West, was opened by Harry Haseley from Great Harwood.
Former Olympian Ron Hill also joined runners for the start of the race.
Starting out on Burnley Road by the Whitakers Arms pub, they took on the challenging 10-kilometre course, which wound through Huncoat and Clayton-le-Moors before finishing at Accrington Cricket Club on Thorneyholme Road.
The race was won by Jeff Prest from Trafford Althetics Club with Michael Keedy from Skipton A.C coming second.
The fastest female runner was Elizabeth Greenwood of Blackburn Harriers.
A donation of £1 has been made from each entry fee to East Lancashire Hospice.
Ian Tomlinson, race director, said: "We had 325 entries which is the best turnout we've had for three or four years.
"Harry Haseley started the event for us as it was 30 years to the day since the club was formed and he was one of the founding members.
"Ron Hill turned up but unfortunately due to injury he was only able to do a couple of miles before he had to retire.
"The weather was fine and the course was fine too and there was no incidents. We had plenty of positive comments back about how the race was set up.
"The first six male and female runners all got a commemorative Accrington 10k mug which they were pleased with.
"We also had a few veteran categories with the oldest person about 75 so we had a good range of ages on the day.
"The winning female is only 16 so she has got a bright future in running."
