A challenge to beat 'Farmer Bytham' across the finish line of a 5k run is being laid down for runners and walkers to mark the start of the Castle Bytham Midsummer Festival weekend.

'The Chase' takes place on Saturday June 22, with the off-road course offering fresh country air and medals for all finishers. It's also suitable for dogs on short leads.

Launched last year, The Chase is the first event of the Castle Bytham Midsummer Festival weekend and gets things off to a flying start.
