Ron Hill - The Runner's Runner

The achievements of legendary marathon runner Ron Hill were showcased at a special film premiere last month.

For one night only, the 80-year-old became a star of the screen as his running exploits, which include winning a gold medal at the 1970 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, were celebrated in front of a packed audience including councillors, dignitaries, school pupils and Tour of Tameside sponsors.

Here's a shortened version of the film.
