Nearly a thousand runners took to the streets of Cambridge for the city’s Town and Gown 10K race.

It is the 10th anniversary of the event, so to celebrate the organisers decided to put the Town and Gown 10K and Cambridge Half Marathon on the same weekend.

Roads in the centre of the city were closed as cars made way for runners. The fastest finisher completing the course in 31 minutes and 17 seconds.
