Run Breckland events raise funds towards junior parkrun
A running fiesta raised hundreds of pounds to help set up a junior parkrun.
Hosted by Run Breckland there were three events held in one day with the event organised to raise funds to set up a junior parkrun in Thetford.
There was a family picnic and games at Lynford Arboretum, with a 1km run held for under-11s and a 5km run.
Participants were encouraged to wear fancy dress with course marshals also taking part in dressing up.
More than £300 was raised to help towards the £3,000 Thetford parkrun director Mel Sturman is trying to raise to launch a junior event.
Designed for four to 11-year-olds, it will involve a 2km route to be held on Sunday mornings.
Run Breckland have organised a 10Km forest run around Santon Downham which will take place on November 25.
