Large crowds gathered in the villages of Quendon and Rickling over the weekend to cheer on participants in this year’s fun run.
The event, which started at Rickling Church of England Primary School, saw three races for runners to get involved in – a one-kilometre route, a five-kilometres race, and a more challenging 10-kilometre run.
After winding through bluebell woods and the Uttlesford countryside, the winners were announced as nine-year-old Thomas Cockerill and seven-year-old Florence Mackenzie for the first race.
For the five-kilometre run, James Bosher and Savanna Sinkett took home first place, before Chris Pitts and Megan Evans crossed the line fastest in the 10-kilometre route.
In a post on Facebook, organisers thanked everyone involved on the day, including a team of volunteers who provided a summer barbecue and race marshals.
The date has already been set for next year’s run, with June 24 marked in the diary.
