Hundreds pounded the streets of Huddersfield in a big annual race.
They enjoyed dry, cold and bright conditions for the Huddersfield 10k, which attracted a capacity field of 700 runners.
The race, as always was organised by Huddersfield Road Runners with Andrea Lyons as race director.
It was the 26th running of the Huddersfield 10k and the runners set off from Huddersfield RUFC’s Lockwood Park to take in Armitage Bridge, South Crosland, Netherton and Berry Brow. Andrea said: “The weather forecast in the lead up to the race was suggesting we were in for a cold dry day, and on the day the weather lived up to its promise making ideal running conditions.
“2016 saw continued use of chip timing and that meant we could manage up to 700 entrants, we sold out, with race entries closed on February 22.”
The race winner was Tristan Learoyd, an ‘open category’ member of New Marske Harriers in a time of 34:27 minutes, a 30 second distance ahead of Stockport Harrier’s James Scott-Buccleuch, a male vet over 35, who came in at 34:57.
The first lady finisher was Johanna Winks, a female vet over 35, of Halifax Harriers with a time of 41:24.
