Hundreds of runners donned their trainers for this year's Wycombe Half Marathon at the weekend. 

The annual half marathon and 10k race kicked off at Adams Park yesterday morning and took runners on a gruelling but picturesque route through the West Wycombe Estate and into the Chilterns.

After the challenging race, which ended back at the football ground, competitors were awarded a medal and a goodie bag for their efforts.

Runner Anuradha Cooray, who represented Sri Lanka at the 2004 and 2012 Olympic Games, stormed to victory once again with a time of 01:13:28. 

He previously won the Wycombe half in 2014 and 2011. 

The first female across the line for the Wycombe half was Jenny Roberts with a time of 01:42:29. 

In the 10k race, Thomas Grimes was first over the finish line after 37 minutes and 53 seconds, with Claire Pusey the first female to finish in 45 minutes and 35 seconds. 

The fun run winners were Austin Edwards and Kate Davis.
