The event took place in Becket’s Park in Northampton, on Sunday to raise money for the charity.

There were one-mile, three-mile and six-mile events and it was one of many taking place all over the country.

Of all the money raised by the public through Sport Relief, half is used in the UK, and half goes towards helping the world’s poorest communities.
