Hundreds of runners braved a chilly Good Friday morning to take part in the Maidenhead Easter 10 road race today.
This year marked the 60th anniversary of the 10-mile run, which is organised by Maidenhead Athletic Club and starts and finishes at Maidenhead Office Park in Westacott Way.
It was won by Anuradha Cooray from Vale of Aylesbury running club, who completed it in just over 50 minutes, while Emily Wickes from Aldershot, Farnham & District was the first lady to cross the line after just over 56 minutes.
Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Colin Rayner was on hand to start the race and to hand out medals.
Home Secretary and Maidenhead MP Theresa May was helping out as a race marshal.
Race director Ian McKenzie said: "We're delighted with the way it went. The feedback from the runners has been positive."
Proceeds will be split between the club and Thames Valley Adventure Playground.
Race results will be available via www.maidenheadac.co.uk
