A Downham Market school is set to hold its first post-lockdown community event to raise funds for charity and the school.
Hillcrest Primary School will be opening its grounds to "frustrated runners, joggers and walkers" on Thursday, July 8 for a Race for Life fundraiser.
Staff have created a three-quarter mile lap around the edge of the school's playing fields and both children and adults will be given a 20-minute challenge to see how many times they can complete the loop by either walking or running the course.
Headteacher Matthew Try said: "Race for Life is an event that people will be very familiar with. However, rarely are such events held within the grounds of a school and rarely are they held after such a long pause in amateur running events, caused by the restrictions in place as a result of Covid.
Entry will be £5, with proceeds split 60-40 between Cancer Research UK and Friends of Hillcrest.
