Women gathered at the Norfolk Showground in Norwich on Sunday to take part in the 20th Race for Life in the city.

Thousands of competitors took part in the 5K and 10k races around the Norfolk Showground all in the name of Cancer Research UK.

Before the run, women gathered around to share memories, stretch their muscles and warm up. Most were wearing pink t-shirts and vests, and many went an extra step by decorating their outfits with pink wigs, sunglasses, angel wings, hula-hoops and tutus.

On Saturday, about 4,200 people took part in a 5km 'Pretty Muddy' event.

Just over £500,000 had been raised from the weekend's events with more money still to be collected.
