Near perfect weather conditions helped make the fifth annual Jigsaw Run the most successful yet with almost 400 runners taking to the track.

Runners took in two laps of Dunsfold Park’s road and runway, past the resident Boeing 747 and crossing the famous BBC Top Gear track in the annual 10k race.

Community and events fundraiser Sally Ward said: “The Jigsaw Run is getting bigger and better than ever.

“The feedback we receive tells us that Dunsfold Park is an ideal course to achieve personal bests with its closed flat roads and some interesting landmarks to run past plus, of course, the fun of crossing the Top Gear line.

“We are grateful to everyone who has taken part for contributing to Jigsaw’s fundraising endeavours and we hope that the serious runners achieved the times they were aiming for whilst the fun runners had a good time too.”

The Jigsaw Trust near Cranleigh are specialists in supporting children and young adults with an autism spectrum disorder. The event was sponsored by advisors Informed Choice.
