More than 1,000 people packed into Accrington to celebrate the first every Ron Hill 10km race.
Around 500 runners from across the country joined with the borough-born Olympic legend for the race which went from the town centre to Rising Bridge and back.
The inaugural event was organised by the council and supported by local businesses and running groups with all proceeds going to charity.
Runner Ben Lindsay came first with a time of 34 minutes 20 seconds.
He was followed by Clayton-le-Moors Harriers runners Chris Holdsworth, with a time of 35 minutes 30 seconds and Breton Holdsworth with a time of 36 minutes.
Hyndburn Council leader Miles Parkinson said it was a ‘fantastic’ day and will now become an annual event.
He said: “The town centre was a hive of activity and the weather shone on the day for Ron.“It was quite emotional seeing the amount of people take part.
“It was amazing to witness all these people running through Accrington.“Some of the runners set extremely good times and it was a great day out for the family.
“It will become an annual race and it is nice that a town which is home to the legend Ron Hill has got this.”
