Popular running event returns to Englefield Estate in West Berkshire
The Englefield 10k race was held at the Englefield Estate on Sunday, with runners competing in various categories.
The annual event is a highlight of the West Berkshire athletic calendar, and all proceeds were this year donated to Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
Participants each made their own contribution to the event, organised by the Rotary Club of Reading Abbey in partnership with Tadley Runners.
Alongside the main event, a 3k course – aimed as under-15s and less experienced runners – was staged concurrently with the 10k course.
For the 10k event, Hugo Donovan prevailed in the Senior Men's category, clocking in at 38 minutes 32 seconds, while Sonka Reimers won the Senior Women's category, finishing in 39 minutes 26 seconds.
Bernie Gerrard won the Veteran Men – 40-49 category, completing the course in 39 minutes 49 seconds, Max Krefting triumphed in the Junior Men category in 40 minutes five seconds, and Emily McLoughlin topped the Senior Women category, finishing the 10k course in 41 minutes 46 seconds.
Heath Bampton, meanwhile, sprinted to victory in the Veteran Men – 50-59 category, clocking in at 40 minutes 23 seconds.

Over 30 persons affiliated with the Rotary Club and Tadley Runners were involved with the running of the event, including the management of the race itself.
A spokesperson said of the event: "The weather was cool but dry, and over 200 competitors had entered this charity race, which this year was for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
"We don’t know the total raised yet, but thanks to the Benyon family for giving us access to the estate and to all our helpers, supporters and competitors for making this another successful event."
