Thousands compete in Great Cumbrian Run

Nearly 2,000 runners raced in and around Carlisle in this year's Great Cumbrian Run today.

Competitors setting off from Carlisle Castle in the Great Cumbrian Run.

The event, in its 31st year, was completed by many competitive runners trying to record times and other competitors looking to smash fundraising totals.


Runners started at Carlisle Castle before heading through the city via Botchergate, through to Wetheral and on to Scotby before jostling for position on the Sheepmount’s home straight.


Rain clouds held off for the majority of the race - certainly for 36-year-old Border Harrier James Buis who won with a time of 71 minutes 37 seconds.


However, those finishing after the hour and half mark had to battle the rain as they bid to finish strongly.

Will you be turning out the lights in honour of those who fell in WW1?

Yes, it will be a fitting and moving collective tribute. I want to be part of it

No. I can't see it will make any difference to anything

I prefer to remember all those who died in all wars in my own way
