Hosted by the village’s Crown Inn, the event involved participants pushing a wheelbarrow, as a pair, around a four mile route.

There was a shorter veterans and ladies race, plus junior races on the field and family fun afterwards.

A spokesman said: “Belton Barrow Race 2017 was a resounding success. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
