There was a bumper field of 483 for the April Fools Day Lewes AC Easter Fun Run on Monday.

The West Sussex Fun Run League event featured a well attended Toddlers Trot, twice around the 400m metre track and a one and two-mile option for juniors. The two-mile course leaves the track and takes in a mixed terrain before finishing back on the track.

The junior races saw great performances on the track from young Haywards Heath Harriers Josh Essex, Isobel Russell, Harry Russell, Meadow Davies, Jemimah Davies and Nellie Watts. All competitors got chocolate Easter bunnies for their hard work.

Full results are currently awaited but will soon feature on
