This year's race was a sell-out, with 428 people crossing the finishline, having battled against hot and sunny conditions.

The picturesque event took runners through the stunning Druridge Bay Country Park, along a beautiful sandy stretch of Druridge Bay beach and around Ladyburn Lake.

Today's run was in aid of HospiceCare North Northumberland, which has centres in Alnwick and Berwick. Yellow ribbons were also available, with proceeds going towards British Red Cross' We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up in the wake of last Monday's terroroist attack in the city.

After the run, the Druridge Bay 10k committee tweeted: 'Well done to everyone who ran today. You all did amazing.'
