More than 300 adults and children took part in the Wrington fun run, which saw participants set off from the recreation ground pavilion before taking on a 5km circuit of the playing fields in Silver Street.

Before setting off, the runners warmed up with a little help from the spa at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House fitness team, who once again sponsored the event, providing medals for winners and children who took part.

The event, which is now in its 39th year, is organised by Wrington Primary School's parent teacher association (PTA) and all proceeds from the event go towards school funds.

As well as the run, the day also featured a barbecue and bouncy castle.
