Difficulty in breathing post running, feeling of passing out. Cause?

I ran 8 kms today it was hot but nice breeze... at the 8kms I felt like my chest was full hard to breath as if I had asthma whites yellows became VERY bright and I felt like I was going to pass out. It was my first run more than 4 kms ...if I knelt down I was ok for a time it didnt pass right away but enough to walk a bit then it would return... it lasted for about 15 mins or so still not feeling the best.

May be it was just unaccustomed exertion that made you short of breath or it could be exercise induced asthma. Do you have any history of allergy or any family history of asthma. You may undertake a PFT test both before and after some moderate exercise and then again after inhaling some bronchodilaters. This may help in establishing the diagnosis.
