Our video of Durham City Run 2019 shows the packed streets as hundreds of runners made their way around the city circuit.

The Durham City Run video shows the runners take on the Prince Bishops 10k and 5k races, which took place on Thursday July 25.

You can also see photographs of the run in our Durham City Run picture gallery story.

On a hot and humid evening, the runners set off from the starting line on Claypath, near to the Clayport Library and Durham Gala Theatre, heading over to the far bank of the River Wear and back around, over Pennyferry Bridge and along past the Sands car park.

See if you can spot a familiar face among the runners and supporters in our Durham City Run video below:

To finish the race, they made their way back along Saddler Street, up the final slope of Owengate and on to the finishing line on Palace Green, where they collected their t-shirt and medal, or even get a massage if they needed. You can see footage from key locations on the route in the Durham City Run video.

As well as individual runners, there were also lots of local North East running clubs taking part, including Elvet Striders, Chester le Street AC, Riverside Striders, Birtley AC, Tyne Bridge Harriers, Blaydon Harriers, Quakers Running Club, Sunderland Harriers, Sunderland Strollers, Darlington Harriers and Athletics Club, Durham City Harriers and AC, Gateshead Harriers, Washington Running Club, Evenwood Road Runners and Leadgate Livewires.

Due to a burst water main, the Durham City Run route had to be amended shortly before the race day, as well as the starting times and locations of the two runs. Both the 10k and the 5k - which were due to start at different times - ended up beginning at the same time, at 7.30pm.

Runners also took part on behalf of many different charities, including the Samaritans, Cystic Fibrosis, Macmillan Cancer Support, and the Jane Tomlinson Appeal among many others.

Among the fancy dress costumes among the Durham City Run participants were a cricketer, a bishop, and a runner with a wheelie bin on his back.
