There was a red, white and blue theme at the Tiptree Strawberry Race near Colchester in Essex, to mark American Independence Day.
Usually the race, which is in its seventh year takes place in mid-June, but because of a cold spring this year it was delayed.
Dozens of people came from all over the country to take part in the race to see who could pick the most strawberries in 60 minutes.
