Runners from South East Cornwall joined thousands of people taking part in the Plymouth Half Marathon on Sunday – one of the hottest days of the year.

The East Cornwall Harriers, Tamar Trotters and Looe Pioneers were among the running groups taking part in the 13-mile event.

Many people were running for charity, including Jamie Evans from Saltash, who was running in memory of his 24-year-old wife Jo, who died of a rare, aggressive form of cancer in January this year.

Thousands of people lined the streets of Plymouth to cheer on those taking part, and one man had to be resuscitated after collapsing.

Mark Story, the Torpoint rower, ran the race to raise money for the Looe charity Ellie's Haven and for his attempt to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic in December.

Cornish Times reporter Carrie Garrad was among nearly 4,000 people taking part in the event, finishing in a time of 2 hours 37 minutes 29 seconds and raising more than £160 for a local charity.

The fastest finisher from South East Cornwall was Steven Brookes from Tamar Trotters, finishing in 1.21.11.
