More than 800 people have taken part in a 10k race in memory of Nottingham Forest legend, Brian Clough and his former assistant manager Peter Taylor.

The first Clough-Taylor People's Run took place at Donington Park in Leicestershire to raise money for various charities, including Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, Nottingham Hospitals Charity, CP Sport and Hope Against Cancer.

Competitors wore red and white t-shirts, the colours of the two football clubs Clough and Taylor managed.

The pair steered Derby County out of the old Division Two in 1969, and three years later won the first division title.
