Hundreds of runners have raced through the streets of Darlington.

The 10K race was held in the town for the 24th time and attracted more than 1,000 participants.

The winner was Yared Hagos in a time of 30mins 6secs. He beat the course record, which had stood for nine years, by 15 seconds.

There was also a family fun run and junior race and thousands of pounds was expected to be raised for a range of charities.

The chosen charities for the race were the 700 Club, which works with homeless and vulnerable people in Darlington, and St Teresa's Hospice.

Spectators also had the chance to have their photo taken with a case containing the torch from the 2006 Winter Olympics.
