Runners, families and children basked in the summer sunshine as the Mayor of Hounslow, Councillor Samia Chaudhary, was the official starter for the Brentford Challenge. With temperatures soaring, more than 300 people – including local MP Ruth Cadbury – took part in one of Brentford’s biggest sporting events at Syon Park last Sunday.
Run in partnership with Brentford Lock West, the Brentford Challenge included a 10k run, 5k run, 5k Walk and Talk (in association with West London Mental Health Trust) and a 1k children’s race. Interestingly, all the runners had the unique opportunity to run in the stunning private grounds of Syon Park.
