A selection of pics from the Sunday’s Gosport Golden Mile and Golden 5k.

The popular event, put on by Absolute Running, showcased plenty of the young athletics talent in the area and local clubs were well represented.

Lewis Banner won the Golden Mile with Jacob O’Hara winning the Junior Golden Mile and the senior Golden 5k.

Bad weather on the day meant records were out of the question and personal bests and target times were also tough to get.

However, the rain and wind did not stop the runners and spectactors from having a great time.

It was the third edition of the event and it continues to grow, with local businesses helping out and lots of local schools including Redlands and Cams Hill out in force.

Hendy Ford sponsored the prize fund and Nice Work managed the race on behalf of Absolute Running, in Gosport.
