Sunderland sizzled in the sun today as the city held its latest half-marathon.

The 13-mile race was part of the Siglion Sunderland Run Festival, where a record numbers of runners entered across a range of events. The main event for many was the half-marathon - here's some of our pictures. We'd love to see your snaps of the day.
