The fourth annual BRJ Mayor’s charity race was held at Jubilee Park in Huntingdon on Bank holiday Monday. The overnight rain and overcast skies did not deter the 311 runners who took part or the crowds of family and friends who came to support them.
However, the rain stayed away and the sun came out to help the runners on their way. The Fun Run involved two laps of the perimeter of the playing fields a demanding one and a half miles.
Hollyoaks star Kieron Richardson (Ste Hay) came along to support the event and to run the course with the children and their families. Many were rewarded with a chance to a have a selfie taken with him.
Darryl Brown (Mayor of Huntingdon) did the honours by starting the Fun Run. Then he joined Jonathon Djanolgy MP on the 5-mile race run over the playing fields and around the field margins of the local farm.
