Hundreds of runners braved blustery conditions to complete this year's East Coast Run.
The annual event, which started and finished in St George's Park, Great Yarmouth, proved a great success - despite unfavourable conditions.
More than 300 people signed up for the 10km race, with Great Yarmouth mayor Malcolm Bird on hand to wave them all on.
After fighting the elements, 27-year-old Piers Arnold was the first over the line, while Sam Lines was the first woman home.
Mr Arnold, of Norwich, said: 'The wind made it pretty tough, but it was still a great race.'

The road race was organised by the Great Yarmouth Road Runners and Great Yarmouth Borough Council.
