Thousands of families from all over the country have taken part in a range of running events from a half marathon and 10k to a fancy dress immersive 2.5k fun run.

Presenter, DJ and author Fearne Cotton, Britain's most successful athlete ever Christine Ohuruogu, marathon runner Ben Smith and Dale Pinnock, the The Medicinal Chef, are just some of the successful, inspirational and famous faces giving talks and in attendance.

Festival-goers have praised the event as a "fantastic weekend".

One said: "Fab day with my fave bloke and met my fave DJ too #RunFestRun #heroes."

Another added: "@RunFestRun what a fantastic weekend it’s been. I did my 1st ever race- the neon night race and then followed it by running another 5k twelve hours later!

"Not bad considering I couldn’t run a mile just 8 weeks ago. Such a fantastic festival! Blog post coming soon! #RunFestRun."
