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."
