Runners dug deep to complete Standalone 10k in Letchworth on Sunday, raising £1,700 for two charities in the process.
Places for the event – which is in its 31st year and organised by North Herts Road Runners – sold out in record time more than two months ago, and had a waiting list of 300 people keen to join the 1,600 entrants.
Garden City Samba, a kids fun run and added charity fundraising provided entertainment for spectators and runners following the main event.
Race director Richard Harbon from NHRR said: “The atmosphere was just fantastic this year. Our race marshals said everyone out on the course – runners and spectators alike – was really positive.
“It was just a great day for the local community.”
