See if you can spot yourself or a familiar face in this picture gallery full of images from Sunday's annual event, which saw hundreds of runners turn out.

Held under UK Athletics Rules, the popular race is a key fixture for seasoned runners from across Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire, as well as for others who are taking part in their first half-marathon.

Many runners also use it as a warm-up to the London Marathon held in April.

Coinciding with International Women’s Day, the women’s race was won by Elaine Livera from Huntingdonshire AC in 01:20:38, with Georgina Weston of Rotherham Harriers second with 1:21:46 and Lyndsay Eastman from Kimberworth Striders also finishing on 01:21.46.

The men’s race was very closely contested with the first three runners finishing within seconds of each other. The race was won by Will Strangeway from Lincoln Wellington AC in a time of 1:09:11, with Jamie Hall from Huntingdonshire AC second in 01:09:14 and Gareth Lowe from Clowne Road Runners in third with 1:09:22.

The women’s team prize went to Sheffield Steel City Striders and the men’s team prize went to Wakefield District Harriers and AC.

While almost 100 runners took part in the Fun Run which was sponsored by Retford Lions Club.

The bumper turn-out was good news for the official race charity Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
