Event manager Annie Ashwell said: "We had a fantastic weekend raising vital funds and getting Pretty Muddy in the process! The atmosphere was electric and the sun shone all weekend.

"By taking part in Race for Life and raising money, participants are playing a crucial role in helping to turn discoveries made in the lab into new, better treatments for patients across Hertfordshire and throughout the UK. That's why every person and every penny raised counts."
