About 100 people joined forces, and limbs, to compete in a charity three-legged race through Whitton on Sunday (May 4).

A total of 47 teams (some, rather ambitiously, with more than two members) lined up for this year's fancy dress race, raising more than £4,000 for Cancer Research UK.

The event, now in its 18th year, was set up in memory on Nadine Cribbs, a former regular at The Prince Albert pub, in Whitton.

The Jamaican bobsled team and the killer from Scream were among those represented (thanks to some creative fancy dress) in this year's competition, which saw teams dash between four pubs, answering questions en route.

Organiser David Bond said: "It was a great turnout, probably helped by the weather, and we're delighted with the amount raised."

The event, which has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity over the years traditionally attracts some impressive fancy dress costumes.
