More than 2,500 finishers have crossed the line in this year’s Chichester Corporate Challenge series as the event proves more popular than ever.

The third and final race night saw another turn-out of around 900 runners, adults and children, taking part in seven different races around a tight city-centre circuit well populated by family and friends supporting them.

Brighton Phoenix’s Josh Guilmant won the elite A race - to add to his victory on the opening race night - and was left wondering whether an alternative engagement on the date of the second races in the series had cost him a rare hat-trick of victories.

You can see the best of the final-race-night action in photographer Louise Adams’ gallery, above, and other highlights from earlier the series on the Observer video on this page.

Get the Observer next Thursday (April 2) for a report, pictures and full list of finishers from the final races.
