HUNDREDS of runners put their best foot forward to help boost charities and local causes.

The seventh Bangor Half Marathon & 10k event was held on Sunday.

Just over 700 runners made it to the finish line on a dry and cloudy day, which organisers said provided the "perfect running conditions."

The race started and finished in Bangor High Street, with runners from all over the UK, and a few from overseas, taking part.

The runners headed along the Garth Pier, taking in stunning views over the Menai Strait, with the half marathon runners going into the Penrhyn Castle estate.

Many runners raised hundreds of pounds for different charities. For some it was their first-time taking part in a 10k or half marathon.

At the finish line every runner collected a medal as a souvenir to remind them of their achievement.

Organises Run Wales said: "We would like to say a huge thank you and congratulations to everyone who took part .

"A massive thank you to all our volunteers, staff, marshals, first aid, cadets, swimming groups, St David’s Hospice and of course all the runners. We hope you all had a great day!"

Other upcoming Run Wales races events include the Flintshire 10k & 5k, on Sunday, October 20, 2019 and the Conwy Half, on Sunday, November 17, 2019.

The next Run Wales, Bangor race, will be on Sunday, October 4, 2020 with online entries already open.
