Two north Norfolk women have completed a hat-trick of night time powerwalk marathons for a cancer charity.
Lisa Payne and Olivia Newstead pulled on their decorated bras to stride out on moonwalks in London, Edinburgh and Iceland.
Their efforts in the Three Land Challenge are set to top £3,000 for a charity raising funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer.
After the Iceland event - staged in night time daylight in the Land of the Midnight Sun - Miss Payne said: 'It was absolutely amazing, and out of this world. The landscape, the views and the tranquillity.
'The sun went down about midnight, but it was still like a dull day.

'It was by a lake and there were sheep and goats around us. But it was cold, nearly freezing, so I went a bit quicker than usual just to get to the finish where there we could relax in hot natural spas,' added the 38-year-old from Mundesley, who is an administrator at the Dream Lodge company in North Walsham.
Ms Newstead, a 39-year-old student nurse from North Walsham, was nursing a leg injury from the Edinburgh event a week earlier - so did the Iceland event at her own pace. The London event was in May.

The duo's efforts have been helped by a WI-style cheeky calendar of Mundesley women, which also led to them appearing on an episode of the TV series Embarrassing Bodies.
A final fundraiser is set to take them past £3,000 - well above their initial target of £2,000 for Walk The Walk, which raises money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
On Saturday June 29 the event at the Orchard Gardens pub in North Walsham from 7.30pm will feature live music with two bands - The Walls and The Bare Essentials - a raffle, auction and some 'waxing of men'.
