Held at Washbrook Farm on Benwick Road in Doddington, families and friends took part in an obstacle-filled course whereby runners overcame the mud and other hurdles, including a straw bale pyramid and water slides.

Nearly 1,000 runners competed across both Saturday and Sunday, with hundreds more in attendance.

James Welcher, of Insane Terrain, said: "It went very well and it was a great bit of fun."

A 3km family fun day was hosted on Saturday, with a more casual 5-10km run scheduled for Sunday, which tested runners' upper body strength whilst also providing fun.

The event also had live music and a commentator, which raised funds for the Royal Papworth Hospital Foundation Trust.
