The stormy conditions failed to deter some hardened runners with both two legs and four legs on Sunday as the February Trust10 took place at Chirk Castle.

More than 50 runners headed to the beautiful surroundings of Chirk Castle to take part in a 10k route of twice around the grounds, though some chose to run just one lap of the castle.

The Trust10 takes place on the fourth Sunday of each month, and attracts runners of all abilities and ages, and is open to pets too, provided they are ready to run on a lead.

A National Trust spokesman said: "Join us on the fourth Sunday of every month for our free 10k trail run.

"Registration is from 8am at Chirk Castle car park, and the run starts at 9am.

"The course is two laps of 5k, but some runners choose to complete just one lap of 5k.

"Registration is from 8am to 9am at Home Farm, next to the car park.

"Please arrive dressed and ready for the event, normal running or trail shoes are suitable. Dogs on a lead/harness are permitted at this event – maximum of one dog per runner please."
