Hundreds of competitors have today completed the JCB Fun Run in Staffordshire, raising over £40,000 for charity.

The event, now in its second year, attracted 1,000 entrants – double last year’s field – for the five-mile endurance course, which raised cash for the NSPCC.

The course featured a 100ft long underground mud tunnel, cargo nets, rope swings, monkey bars and plenty of mud.
