Fam­ily race day comes up trumps

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Chase And Chill -

Hun­dreds of ea­ger run­ners en­joyed the thrill of the chase at a vil­lage fam­ily day at the week­end.

Chil­ham Cas­tle hosted the Chase and Chill event, with run­ners of all shapes and sizes tak­ing part in the two-mile route around the cas­tle grounds.

It in­cluded fire­fight­ers Phil Cor­ner, Steve Cas­tle, and Joseph Mort, while the White and Far­rer fam­i­lies were su­per­heroes.

Mu­sic was pro­vided by groups such as The Steam Punks, The Chill­bil­lies, the Old Wives Lees choir, and others.

There were also vin­tage cars on dis­play, Ger­ald James at­tended with Jo Jo the Har­ris hawk, and the 1st Chil­ham Brown­ies of­fered cakes and treats.

Can­ter­bury Fes­ti­val helped or­gan­ise the event, and spokesman Rachel Pilchard said it was a great suc­cess, with 180 run­ners tak­ing part, and around 900 people go­ing through the gates to en­joy the all-day fes­ti­val.
