Family race day comes up trumps
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.
