It was one of the hottest days of the year – and the Striders were out in force to mark the Summer Solstice with the annual 5k dash along the seafront.

Everyone was welcome to join the race, with the juniors tackling a 2.5k course while the seniors took on the full 5k out-and-back route.

The temperature might have taken the edge off the times, but the sunshine brought out the smiles – and it was a wonderful evening topped off with a dip in the sea followed by a drink at the Newhaven & Seaford Sailing Club afterwards.
