A record-breaking year as almost 900 runners complete the Harmony Energy Harrogate 10k and Kids Fun Run on Sunday, 30 June.

Set in the famous spa town of Harrogate, the annual 10k saw participants embrace the multi-terrain route, with Crimple Valley reopening to runners to celebrate the special occasion.

In addition to the 10k, children participated and enjoyed the Kids Fun Run.
