Hundreds of people turned out for this year's annual Remembrance Run in the Phoenix Park yesterday.

The event brought people together who walked, ran or jogged the 5k route while remembering and dedicating their participation to loved ones.

The race started at Chesterfield Avenue at 11am.

There was a special Wall of Remembrance erected at the race finish on Furze Road in the Park, which was filled to capacity with signatures and messages from the participants remembering their family and friends.

Every person who managed to finish the race received a specially designed souvenir candle.

It was the seventh Remembrance Run to be held.
