The sun shone on the hundreds of runners who took part in this year's Race For Life.

Held in the evening for the first time, the race at Haigh Hall was as successful as ever with £65k being raised in the battle against cancer.

The rain that had been threatening for most of the day gave way to glorious evening sunshine and perfect conditions for the runners.
