More than 400 people took part in the 10km and 5km events, including Team GB steeplechaser Pippa Woolven, who became the first woman to win the race.

Race director Diane Hill said: “We were delighted by the success of this year’s race.

“Despite torrential rain, the runners and supporters came out in force.

“It was wonderful to see the community come together to cheer on the participants. It was an incredibly inspiring day.

“At its heart, the Frieth Hilly is a community event which raises funds for the school’s IT suite.

“It’s wonderful to see how it has become a fixture on the race circuit and that it is now attracting professional athletes wanting to take part.”
