PICTURE GALLERY: Runners raise cash for Break during Hunny Bell Cross Country

Runners of all ages laced up their trainers for a good cause in north Norfolk today to take part in a charitable run.

Competitors took in a scenic route through the Stody Estate in Hunworth near Holt for this year's Hunny Bell Cross Country, which raises money for Break.

The Sheringham based charity has been helping vulnerable people for more than 40 years through a range of services, including providing homes for children and supported holidays.

Young runners kicked off the event this morning as the two mile race for the under 13s got under way at 10am. They were followed by the under 17s, who completed a three mile route, and finally the adult competitors who set off at 11am on a five mile circuit.

First over the line in the youngest category was 13-year-old Leigh Robertson, who was closely followed by Adam Buckenham, 16, and Megan Bird, 14, who took the winning titles in the male and female under 17s race.

Every person across the line also received a medal for taking part in the race, which was supported by the North Norfolk Beach Runners. Competitors raised money for Break through sponsorship or by paying �10 to enter.
