Event manager Anna Molloy said: “We had a fantastic day at Crawley. It was beautifully sunny and Tilgate is a lovely cross country course.

“We had a sea of pink, including lots of tutus – in fact there were a lot of men sporting tutus too! And obviously lots of mud on the Pretty Muddy course.

“As always, there was a great atmosphere – I think people were glad to be back.

“I’d also like to say a big thank you to the volunteers who came to help run the course. Some of the local running clubs, and the veteran runners, came and helped and without them we couldn’t have opened the obstacles.

“The money is still coming in and being totted up but we hope to have raised thousands and thousands to help beat cancer.”
