Today sees the climax of Medway's very own sporting extravaganza the 2012 Westfield Health British Transplant Games.

Since Thursday athletes aged from two to 80, all recipients of an organ transplant, have been competing in a variety of different sports here in the Towns.

The Games were officially opened in a ceremony at Rochester Cathedral on Thursday evening, which saw the more than 500 athletes taking part parade into the cathedral from Rochester Castle.

The final day today (Sunday) is taken up with track and field events at Medway Park in Gillingham - the hub of the Games.

Last night (Saturday) around 300 people ran and walked around the Great Lines Heritage Park for the Donor Run.

Sunday's events, which finish at 5.30pm, are free to go along and watch, and there is a grandstand for spectators.
