The route took runners out of town through the beautiful countryside of Coleshill, and back round to the finish line at Warneford School.
First across the line was Simon Plummer of Woodford Green Running Club - in an impressive 24 minutes 49 seconds.
And it was a successful day for Cirencester Athletic Club with runners Chris Illman and Adrian Williams finishing second and third respectively, and Wendy Nicholls coming in first for the ladies in 27m 50s.
Organised by Highworth Running Club, this was the 23rd annual event of its kind.
