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.
