A record number of people laced up their running shoes to take part in the charity Great Harwood 10K race.
Parents, children and running clubs from across the region gathered in the town for the annual event in aid of East Lancashire Hospice, with youngsters also joining in a 1km fun run.
Around 450 people signed up to take part on the day and the race was won by John Lloyd of Salford Harriers and AC with a time of 36 minutes and seven seconds.
The fastest local runner was third placed Jacob Watson of Clayton-le-Moors Harriers who was followed home by Chris Walton and Graham Morris of the Accrington Road Runners.
The fastest local female runner was Laura Hudson of the Accrington Road Runners with a time of 44 minutes 33 seconds.
The race was co-organised by Nick Gaskell and started at Gaskell Motor Bodies off Alan Ramsbottom Way.
Nick said it was a ‘super day and a super turnout’ and believes up to £7,000 could have been raised for the charity.
He said: “The event is definitely growing each year and everybody is picking up on the back of each other and helping each other, like the Accrington 10K and the Ron Hill 10K races.
“The weather was fantastic and we couldn’t have asked for better running weather. It was ideal.”
The race had to be postponed from the previous weekend due to bad weather and Nick said the turnout was slightly affected on the day.
He said: “We had about 450 people enter, however some of those had already booked to do other races on the day. We still had 318 people take part and those who pre-booked left their money in which will go to the hospice.
“I was a bit worried after we had to postpone but everybody was positive and came back the following week and got the adrenaline going again.
“It was a great team effort with everybody pulling together, from the marshals to the hospice team and sponsors. Everybody did a corking job.
“We are going to have to try and better this every year but this year is going to take some beating. There were a lot of kids taking part as well and they were really going for it.”
