Hundreds of people have run through the beautiful landscape of the Stody estate at Hunworth, near Holt, to raise money for charity.

The Hunny Bell Cross Country attracted a record 500 participants on Sunday, all helping to raise money for Norfolk-based children’s charity Break.

The run was the last to be organised by estate manager Ross Haddow, who has plans to move away.

Ben Handley, chef and owner of the Hunworth Bell pub, which sponsors the run, said: “It was a record turnout and the weather was completely wonderful for the whole race.

“Ross has organised it for the past 10 years, so we were very pleased he got a good send off for his last race.”

There were both five-mile and 2.4-mile courses, and dog-walkers also joined in.

Event spokesman Andrew Waddison of AW PR said: “Break does such terrific work in Norfolk and we look forward to supporting them over the next few years.”
