More than 14,000 runners have taken part in the annual Reading Half Marathon.

Stephen Amos Kiplagat from Kenya won the 13.1-mile race in one hour, three minutes and 10 seconds.

The first woman past the finishing line at the Madejski Stadium was Lily Partridge in one hour, 10 minutes and 32 seconds.

Organisers said this year's route was "flatter and faster" as they removed some areas of uphill struggle.
