Almost 1,500 runners took to the city streets to raise money for Wakefield Hospice.
The annual 10k race saw 1,330 people run from Clarence Park to Horbury and back again yesterday (Sunday).
The event, which was started by BBC Look North newsreader Harry Gration, was won by Ian McBride of Royton Road Runners in a time of 32 minutes and 13 seconds.
Second and third places went to Adam Peers and Patrick Gardiner respectively.
The first woman across the finish line, with a time of 35 minutes and 42 seconds, was Helen Singleton of Wakefield H&AC.
For the first time mascots took part in their own 100 metre race and the dash was narrowly won by Wakefield Wildcats’ Daddy Cool.
Youngsters and fancy dress runners also competed in a 1k fun run.
