YOUNG and old gathered at Scadbury Park to take part in the Chislehurst Church of England school fun run.

Staged to raise money for the Parents' Association fund, more than 70 runners battled it out in the sizzling sunshine.

Thomas Ponting romped home to clinch victory in the boys section in a time of just over 17 minutes, while Harriet Park secured first position in the female event.

Event organiser Julie Burgess said: “The emphasis of the event was very much on having fun. Some entered to post a fast time but the majority were there just to enjoy the outing and raise money for the school. We all had a great time.”
