Hundreds of runners took part in a six or 12 mile cross country race around the picturesque Southwell countryside for the inaugural Southwell Swine.

The race, which started and ended at Southwell Rugby Club, took place on 11th August and raised £300 for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.

During the race, the runners tackled stiles, kissing gates, narrow paths and roads before a short, steep hill took them to the finish line.

Adam Rybak was the fastest male in the six-mile race, finishing with a time of 41 minutes 32 seconds, while Pam Dutton was the fastest woman with a finish time of 51 minutes and 25 seconds.

In the 12-mile race, David Bruce finished first with 79 minutes 58 seconds, while Jessica Bruce completed the race in 91 minutes and 17 seconds.
