More than 60 pupils, staff and parents took part in a pirate-themed fancy dress fun run, to raise cash towards Sheringham Primary School's £30,000 climbing frame appeal.
Organised by PE teachers Matt Groves and Zoe Parish with the help of parent Heidi Burton, the event saw swashbuckling runners and walkers make their way round a 5km course mapped out around local beauty spot Kelling Heath.
Head teachers Rachael Carter and Sue Brady manned a cake stall, while pre-race entertainment was provided by Robert Rathbone as Mystico the Magician.
Thanking parents, grandparents and Kelling Heath Caravan Park management, Mr Groves said: 'Everyone who took part agreed the run was a huge success and they are all keen on the idea of it becoming an annual event.'
Proceeds from the run will go towards an appeal to replace the school's thirty-year-old climbing frame with a new, pirate ship design adventure play centre.

Nearly £9,000 has already been raised towards the appeal, with a number of pupils donating pocket money and holding their own sponsored events and staff and school council members organising discos, cake sales and a pyjama day.
Fun run boys' race winner was Brad Keay, with Georgia Pegg bagging the girls' race trophy.
