An event now in its 22nd year, and for the first time ever attracting nearly six hundred runners.

All negotiating an undulating, picturesque course in and around Highworth, which started and finished at Warneford School.
 
The first man home, Shrivenham-based soldier Tim Crossland, who beat a strong local field to win in a time just over 25 minutes.
 
Bourton Road Runners Mike Smith and Dennis Walmsley came in second and third.

"It was tough out there," Crossland, who also won the Swindon half-marathon in 2006, said, "the heat really made a difference at the end."
"I never normally take a drink on a 5 mile run but I had to today."

One competitor, Charles Brookes-Robinson eveb braved the sweltering conditions to run the route twice to raise money for the Martin Miles appeal, a charity set up to help a Highworth policeman seriously injured in a recent motorcycle crash.
