Oxford turned orange on Sunday as more than 5,000 natives and university runners united to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
The Oxford Town and Gown race, now in its 37th year, attracted amateur and professional athletes and fancy dress runners.
Event manger Jessie Keighley said: “With lovely sunny skies and a cool breeze, we had the perfect conditions for runners and spectators.
“It was particularly special to see Mike Cleaver, who founded the event back in 1982, starting the runners off.
“We’d like to thank everyone who came for making it such a brilliant day and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.”
Mike began the run after his son passed away from muscular dystrophy.
The event has gone on to raise more than £2million for the charity in the intervening years.
