GALLERY: Sun shines on the Chichester Priory 10k

Organisers of the 2015 Chichester Priory 10k must have been good lately, for the weather gods were smiling on them as they welcomed 1,655 runners to the course.

There was bright early-spring sunshine and not a hint of ice or rain as the massed ranks of runners made their way up to Lavant and back.
