HERE is another chance to see pictures from the first Miles for Men event that was held in Hartlepool.
Hundreds of dads, granddads, children and friends were united by a common determination to help find a cure for cancer.
It is the only known event of its kind nationally and organisers say the fundraiser, which raised cash for Cancer Research, was a huge success with more than 1,000 people taking part.
The seafront between Hartlepool and Seaton Carew was a sea of blue as runners wore their distinctive Miles for Men T-shirts.
Michael Day came up with the idea of a men’s race in aid of Cancer Research after losing his dad, also called Michael, to throat cancer four years ago.
Hartlepool already hosts a popular Race for Life for women affected by cancer.
Despite the emotion of the day, runners raised a smile wearing all manner of funny costumes including Big Bird, He-Man and horses.
The race was started from Maritime Avenue, Hartlepool, by former Middlesbrough footballer Craig Hignett and finished at Seaton Carew Cricket Club, in Elizabeth Way.
Afterwards, people enjoyed a funday with a barbecue, bar, children’s entertainers, rides and live music.
