The event, in aid of a host of charities including Cancer Research UK, saw runners take two loops of the picturesque park.

After a quick stretch and warm up, runners took to the 5km course, making their way past the children's play area, tennis courts and round pond on their way round the park.

There were runners of all ages and abilities, with many taking to fancy dress for the big event.

Among the runners, a big brown bear, a couple of princesses and even a flamingo could be spotted taking on the course.
