Thousands of runners lined up for the seventh Run Sunderland festival today.
World record holder Paula Radcliffe and Sunderland’s own Team GB marathon star Alyson Dixon joined thousands of club and fun runners in the Siglion Sunderland City Half Marathon and 10K.
The races started and finished in Keel Square, where a large crowd of spectators gathered to support the runners.
Here’s the story of the race in pictures, as seen by Echo photographer Tim Richardson.
