A record field of over 150 runners lined up on The Common in Broughton Gifford for the fifth running of the Great Chalfield 10K organised by Stampede Sports.
The undulating 10-kilometre route is considered by many to be the most picturesque 10K course in Wiltshire as it follows country lanes, passing Stonar School, Holt Manor and Great Chalfield Manor before finishing back on The Common in Broughton Gifford.
First around the certified accurate course was local Broughton Gifford resident George Gurney in an impressive time of thirty four minutes and forty two seconds ahead of Josh Taylor from Team Bath and Dominic Beddis from Avon Valley Runners.
In the Ladies race Ruth Barnes ran an impressive thirty seven minutes and thirty six seconds to finish in fourth place overall and set a new course record, ahead of defending champion Denise Grech of Calne Running Club and Kate Hails of Avon Valley Runners in third.
It is hoped that the race has made nearly £1,000 for Broughton Gifford and Holt Scout Group. The next race being organised by Stampede Sports is the Foxtrot 5 which takes place in Broughton Gifford on Sunday 23rd August.
