A fun run that has turned into a much-loved village tradition attracted top class athletes - and pensioners keen to keep fit.
The King’s Head Canter held on Bank Holiday Monday routes runners the five kilometres from Chiddingly to the King’s Head pub in East Hoathly.
A major attraction is the free drink offered to all competitors who arrive at the pub - whatever time they get there.
There were 244 finishers inlcuding Rosemary Akehurst, 80 who finished her 15th Canter in a time of 59 minutes.
Organiser Stuart Miller said: “This is a unique event. It’s really fast with experienced athletes competing for honours but also attracts village people, some of whom only run this race once a year.
“I came across one runner whose only practice was the night before!”
He said it is a real community event and helps raise money towards the East Hoathly Carnival night - itself a charity fundraiser.
