GALLERY: Chichester Half Marathon in pictures

Chichester staged its first half marathon for more than 20 years - and it could hardly have been a bigger success.

There were close to 450 finishers at the end of a course which took runners through the city centre and some of the district’s finest countryside. Gruelling but great was how most described it.

See if you can spot yourself or anyone you know in our gallery of pictures.

And get the new-look Observer - out on Thursday - for reports, pictures and a full list of finishers from the big race.
