There was a fantastic atmosphere as thousands of people ran their hearts out in aid of good causes in today’s (Sunday, October 11) Perkins Great Eastern Run in Peterborough.

The 13.1 mile course was awash with colour as runners of all ages and abilities pushed themselves to the limit. Runners sporting eye-catching costumes, adding to the fun and spirit of the event, included participants resembling a gorilla and a horse, one group who donned American football gear and another dressed as fairies to name a few.

The popular and well supported event - one of the UK’s fastest half-marathons - returned to the racing calendar in 2006 after a ten year absence and has been a key date in the city’s calendar ever since, attracting entrants from all over the UK and overseas striding out in either the half marathon or the Anna’s Hope 5K fun run.

The first boy (16 and under) to cross the line in this years’s 5k fun run was Cameron Everist. The first girl (16 and under) home was Amelia Monaghan.

A big congratulations goes out to all the runners who took part and managed to finish despite their aching limbs.
