The event took place at Smallbrook Stadium in Ryde over the weekend.

Around 100 people took part in the event which has, so far, raised around £7,000 for Cancer Research.

Teams were challenged to complete the relay over the space of 24 hours – and included cancer survivors, those remembering friends and loved ones and people who are facing their own battle.
