About a hundred people braved heavy rain and brisk winds to race in the Comic Relief Fun Run at Rutland Water on Saturday.

There were one, three or six mile routes to choose from and each participant donated £2 to take part, with all proceeds from the day donated to Comic Relief.

People were encouraged to wear fancy dress and red noses but most participants opted to wear raincoats as the weather made for a challenging course.

Rob Persani and Dean Cornish, from Rutland Radio, were on hand to lead a warm-up before participants set off and hand out medals to those, who finished the course.
