On Saturday's anniversary run at Catton Park, Luke Alden came first out of 342 runners with a time of 17 minutes 53 seconds, while Suzy Hill was the fastest female with a time of 20 minutes 28 seconds.

About Saturday's special anniversary event, Dan Goodwin, co-event director, said: 'It had a bit of a party atmosphere. We asked people to turn up in tutus to celebrate and it was a really lively event.'

The event was first started at Catton Park on October 5 2013 and ever since has been going from strength to strength.

'We started off with 60 or 70 runners each week and we thought it would be marvellous to get to 150, and now, nearly four years on, we have about 350 runners every week,' said Mr Goodwin.
