Grange Farm and Dunmow Runners went from the fun of the virtual London Marathon to the fun of muddy fields in the space of a week.
They held the High Roding Trail, an eight-mile race from The Black Lion in High Roding on Sunday.
Runners had to contend with crossing a deeply-ploughed field as well as navigating through a herd of cows with calves along a route that took them to Pharicee Green, Baconend Green and Great Canfield.
Declan Evans was the fastest in a time of one hour seven minutes 10 seconds.
He finished ahead of Alan Fullerton and Gerard Geurts (1:24:42) with the rest of the field being led by Richard Hynes and Luca Predebon.
