More than 900 runners took part in Sundayís event, setting off from Icknield Road and following an anti-clockwise circular route around the fields to the north of the village near South Stoke before finishing on Boudillon Field behind Goring Primary School.

About 100 runners were encouraged to sign up on the morning of the race by the sunny weather.

The winner was Steve Barnes, of Newbury Athletics Club, who completed the course in 35 minutes and 28 seconds.

Jessica Gibbon, who lives in Rotherfield Road, Henley, and attends Queen Anneís School in Caversham, came home in 36 minutes and 52 seconds, smashing the previous junior womenís record by almost three minutes. Mr Hughes finished in 37 minutes and five seconds.

The winner of the menís junior section was Jamie Dellimore who finished 16th overall with a time of 39 minutes and 24 seconds. Mary Grace Spalton, of Belgrave Harriers, won the womenís open section with a time of 39 minutes and 51 seconds that gave her 20th place overall.

Kay Walsha was the womenís veteransí winner and Anne Sprinz won the womenís super-veterans section. Brian Kirsopp won the menís super veterans and Margaret Moody won the womenís masters.

The race, now in its 18th year, raises money for Goring Primary School and is organised by the parent-teacher association. This yearís proceeds will go towards new computing and sports equipment and sports coaching.

Association member Jules Hopkinson said: “It was a very successful day and, of course, the weather was a big plus. It was great to be out enjoying the sunshine and a lot of people turned up to show their support.”

The race was started by Caroline Pierrepont, who runs Pierreponts cafť in High Street.
