The annual run covers 10 miles, starting and finishing at Maidenhead Office Park in Westacott Way.
Phil Wicks of Belgrave Harriers was the overall winner in a time of 49 minutes and one second and Diane Moore of Headington Road Runners was the first woman home in 62 minutes and 58 seconds.
A total of 867 runners competed this year from clubs all over the country, with Vale of Aylesbury winning the men's team event and Headington Road Runners the women's.
