In its 38th year, the iconic race attracted thousands of runners and a huge number of people who turned out to cheer them on. The men's race was won by Chichester Runners ace James Baker in 1hr 10min 12sec while Hastings-based HY Runners ace Rachael Mulvey took the women's crown in 1.22.18.

In total there were just shy of 2,000 finishers. See a terrific gallery of pictures from the event in the video player above - the images were taken by Justin Lycett and Frank Copper.
