The event raised more than £1,500 for the food banks in Buckingham.

The 167 brave racers who showed out for the Buckingham 10k Run on Sunday, October 23, were unaffected by the torrential rain.

Due to the epidemic, the charity race had not been held since 2019, even though it had been a yearly tradition in the community since the 1970s.

And it lived up to its reputation as a race that is almost always wet.

It was awful, according to the organiser Laura Penny. Every year, it has historically rained during the Buckingham 10k.

“I moved it from last weekend since it conflicted with the Oxford Half Marathon. It was a gorgeous weekend with plenty of sunshine, so rain on the Buckingham 10k day seems only fitting. The Run for the Sky company hired Laura and her husband Alex to plan the event, which collected almost £1,500 for the two foodbanks in Buckingham as well as £200 for the marshalling organisation, Buckingham Round Table.
