About 200 runners put their best foot forward for a first time event at a historic site in aid of a vital charity.

They managed to raise about £2,000 for the British Heart Foundation from the 10K run around the grounds of Ickworth House, in Horringer, on Sunday.

The run was organised by events company Hoohaah, based in Bourn, Cambridgeshire.

All participants received medals and the top three men and women collected trophies.

They were Kevin Murphy who came top at 38 minutes and 32 seconds followed by David Millward and Jonathan Muffett.

Meanwhile, Maxine Lane was ahead at 43 minutes 53 seconds followed by Lisa Marriott and Jodie Beckingham.

Alex Mayer, community fund-raiser for the British Heart Foundation in East Anglia, said: “Everyone seemed to have a good time. It was a bit muddy because we had rain the day before.”

They are hoping to hold another run next year.
