Another wonderful day was enjoyed by all at the beautiful National Trust property Dyrham Park. With 10km, 3km, relay and 300m races there was fun for all levels of experience.

    Runners head off for the first lap up Neptune's Hill.

The 10km was run over a challenging yet stunning course, with winner Will Christofi leading the field in a rapid time of 37.50 minutes. Lead woman Georgia Wood defended her victory from the inaugural race by an impressive two minutes. The runners enjoyed breathtaking views of the Somerset and Gloucestershire landscape and many even challenged the park deer to a sprint finish! It was inspiring to see so many ages and abilities running so a massive congratulations to all those who joined in both the 10km and 3km. We were delighted to be joined by people from near and far, including a family all the way from France.
Once again, the 300m was a great event with many kids enjoying the course and loving receiving their certificates for their efforts. Impressing was Hywel Denham who set off at a rapid pace but didn't tire for that all-important sprint finish. He was closely followed by a troop of up-coming young athletes we have no doubt will be fantastic runners of the future.
The weather held off to allow the athletes and their families time to relax and enjoy the jazz concert in the beautiful grounds as a well-deserved treat.

We are delighted many runners will be returning on 18th September to challenge their times on this exciting course. With a spot prize on the day up-for-grabs of an incredible weekend away for six people at The National Trust's Clutterbuck House, we'd love to see any new entrants join us for the final race of this year's series.
Many thanks to all who joined us today and to our sponsors Cytomax and online retailer Running Home for providing the prizes. And as always, the wonderful marshalls and the National Trust have been superb in enabling such a fun-filled family day to be relished by so many.
