This year’s event, organised by Newmillerdam Community and Conservation Association late last month, featured a Gnome Roam Junior Fun Run, which was won by Ben Shackleton and Emilia Winder. They received their prizes from Wakefield Trinity players Danny Kirmond and Matty Ashurst and mascot Daddy Cool.

The main 5k race, which was stated by Trinity coach Chris Chester, was won by Benjamin Khan in just 17.34 minutes and Gail Coalville in 21.36 minutes.
