Now in its seventh year, the Tiptree Strawberry race is as popular as ever. Normally held in mid-June, it's late this year because of the cold spring.
The aim is to pick as many strawberries as possible in 60 minutes and raise some money for the Essex Air Ambulance.
Due to the chilly conditions, for the first time the race is being held on the 4th July, American Independence day. The winner of the best fancy dress was Joyce Thomas from Diss in Norfolk who dressed as the Statue of Liberty.
