250 RUN­NERS took part in the an­nual Chiltern War­rior run this year on a beau­ti­fully sunny Sun­day (March 13).

The run, ei­ther a 5k or 10k ob­sta­cle course over the grounds of the Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum in Chal­font St Giles, raises thou­sands of pounds for the mu­seum each year.

Sue Shave, mu­seum di­rec­tor, said: “The sun was smil­ing for this year’s Chiltern War­rior and there was a fan­tas­tic buzzing at­mos­phere. The event was pop­u­lar for team run­ners who had some great names this year such as ‘Muddy Moth­ers’ ‘Bob­sta­cle’ and ‘Fruit Rats’.

“Many of the teams were run­ning to raise funds for other lo­cal char­i­ties and causes which made this year’s Chiltern War­rior a great com­mu­nity event. The 250 run­ners af­ter achiev­ing War­rior sta­tus cel­e­brated with a well- de­served ba­con butty.”

Peo­ple also took to Twit­ter to cel­e­brate their achieve­ments – run­ner @ Claire_Alice26 tweeted: “Of­fi­cially a war­rior now! Tough, muddy race. Thanks to all in­volved! #Run­Happy #MudRun­ners.”
