A free parkrun which became the first in the UK to charge participants has become the first in the country to be axed.
Hundreds took part in two free, timed, runs organised by Parkrun UK in Little Stoke Park near Bristol.
They put on a 2km run for children and a 5km route for anyone who wants to take part - and until last month the runs have been free.
But Stoke Gifford Parish Council said it was unfair to expect non-running residents to pay for the upkeep on the paths - voting by a majority in favour of the charge.
They initially proposed a charge of £1 per runner as a maintenance fee, but then voted the volunteer-run organisation should pay.
Now, organisers have said the run - which has been a weekly event at the park since 2012 - will no longer take place.
Announcing the closure parkrun said it was a "disappointing outcome for everyone", adding they had been unable to convince the council "of the true value of the event".
