The oldest race of its kind in the UK made its return.

The Brampton t Carlisle 10-mile road race, the oldest 10-mile road race in the UK, took place on November 19 this year, for the 71st time.

Over time it has attracted some more famous faces, such as Steven Cram, who won the race in the 80s.

According to RunABC North, a running news source, the Brampton to Carlisle 10-mile road race, which is officially known as the 'Wm Coulthard & Co Ltd Brampton to Carlisle 10 Mile Road Race', and is organised by Border Harriers & Athletic Club, was first competed in 1952.

The course takes the competitors from Brampton to Carlisle via the B6264 and is fast and accurately measured by a UK Athletics accredited measurer.

The race started at 10am from just outside Brampton's William Howard School on Longtown Road in the town and made its way to Carlisle along the A689, with the finish on Eden Bridges near Carlisle's Sands Centre.

Previous winners of the race have included  Ron Hill and Angie Pain, and there was a large turnout of runners from all over the country lining up to take part.
