Runners take part in city's race
More than 1,800 runners took part in the Derby 10k race on Sunday.

It began and finished at Pride Park and a two-kilometre fun run also took place. Motorists were being warned of road closures in the area.

Part of the route, going through the heart of Derby, was altered from last year due to ongoing redevelopment of the city and traffic systems.

First to finish the race was Andy Norman who completed the course in just over 30 minutes.

"It's my first time at the Derby 10k. I've raced in Derby before, but on the track," he said after the race.

"The course is really nice, I really enjoyed the race, a lot of turns, so it's not the quickest of courses. But I'm fairly happy."

It was organised by Derby-based charity Sporting Futures, which uses sport to create healthy, crime-free communities.
