Runners from all over the UK braved wind and snow during the annual Haweswater half-marathon. The route starts in the village of Bampton and heads out on roads that run the length of Haweswater, between Penrith and Shap in Cumbria. It's the 14th year of the race, which is organised by Eden Runners.
"As a club we are proud to welcome runners from all over and are pleasantly surprised at how far some people travel to run in the race that over the years has gained a fantastic reputation. The course is stunning and a significant part of the race has the glorious backdrop of the remote mountain valley and the shores of Haweswater."
