More than 1,600 runners took part in Chariots of Fire on Sunday, raising tens of thousands of money for Arthur Rank Hospice as they did so.
The relay race, featuring teams of six, is now in its 30th year and began, as always, on Queens’ Green.
The circular 1.7-mile run route took runners through the city centre, and took in Silver Street, King’s Parade and Garret Hostel Lane.
Runners - representing businesses, charities and other groups - passed the baton to one another in front of a healthy crowd in the early spring sunshine.
It is hoped that the sponsorship money raised will reach the target of £71,000, which will enable the charity to add to its collection of five shops and one retail hub.
Wendy Von Niebel, trustee of HCR Hewitsons Charitable Trust, which organises the tun, said: “This year is extra special – we’re marking 30 years of Chariots of Fire and 40 years of Arthur Rank Hospice Charity – this year’s chosen charity.”
Winning groups - including the fastest team and the quickest mixed team - were presented with trophies at the end of the race.
