HUNDREDS of runners flocked to Thornbury for an annual event on Sunday. 

The Riverbank Rollick - which is a 10 mile race - is organised by Thornbury Running Club. 

Runners met at Castle School before starting the race nearby.

Going west towards the edge of Oldbury-on-Seven before being treated to stunning views of the River Severn and then going back through Littleton-upon-Severn, races finished at Castle School. 

Racers also had to negotiate the trails, bridle paths,  fields, woodland, a stream and a riverbank!

With a time of 59 minutes and one second, Simon Nott was the victor. 

In second and third were Jake Stephens and Ben Mees with times of 01:02:48 and 01:03:40 respectively.

"This year the nearly 400 runners also got sunshine and thoroughly enjoyed the event.

"The event, organised by Thornbury Running Club, would not have been possible without 70 volunteer club members."
