The Lincoln annual 10K road race has taken place with a record number of entrants.

More than 5,000 runners registered for the 15th annual event, setting off on a course around the uphill area of the city.

Last year's race attracted nearly 5,000 runners compared with the first race in 1997, which attracted just 200.

Among those who took part was a team raising money for the Richard Butcher Memorial Fund.

The former Lincoln City Football Club player died suddenly earlier this year aged 29.
