Hundreds of young runners braved flurries of snow to compete in a competition's cross country finals.
More than 600 pupils took part in the year three to six cross country finals at Gresham's School in Holt on Friday, the second day of this year's Norfolk Winter School Games finals.
Each School Sports Partnership (SSP) team included 80 runners, made up of 10 boys and girls from each year group.
Hundreds of spectators turned out to watch the youngsters brave the cold, with year three students - aged seven to eight - taking on the 1,000-metre course, and the other routes increasing by 200 metres per year group.
The event was supported by sports leaders from Alderman Peel High School.
The games finals continue on Thursday, March 2, when the special school games and primary school swimming gala takes place at the University of East Anglia's Sportspark.
