Gunnell, who won the gold medal in the 400m hurdles at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992, sent the 500-plus runners on their way just after 9am.

The runners complete two and a half laps of Hove Park. The fastest finished in about 18 minutes.

Hove Park Run takes place every Saturday at 9am and is free to enter.
