Twelve hundred runners set off from Beadnell for the half marathon run to Alnmouth.

A dog that wasn't under control hampered some of the runners at the start but after that the runners navigated the variable terrain and the winner was Morpeth Harrier Ian Harding who took the honours for the third time.

Another Morpeth Harrier and a previous ladies race winner, Jane Hodgson, was the first woman over the finishing line.
