Around 400 people took to the challenge of Sunday’s multi-terrain half marathon in foggy, but relatively dry conditions.

Baldock Town Partnership director Fraser Valentine said: “It was an excellent event. Very challenging, but everyone I spoke to told me the race was fantastic fun.

“We want to say a massive thank you to all our local businesses. Without their sponsorship we would not be able to put this event on.”
