HUNDREDS of runners took part in a maiden race through some of our area’s most stunning scenery.
The 13.1-mile event took in both countryside and coast as competitors ran from Nose’s Point, in Seaham via Hawthorn Dene and Castle Eden Dene to Crimdon Dene.
Here is a slideshow of images from the race, which was organised by the Durham Heritage Coast Partnership, Durham County Council and Natural England, with more photos and reports to follow in your Hartlepool Mail.
Watch out too for another collection of pictures on this website on Monday.
