Participants of Run Breckland's Breckland Forest 10k Run have helped to raise hundreds of pounds for local charities.
On a cold and crisp morning 150 runners took part in the event which is a circular course starting and finishing at Santon Downham's village hall.
The winners were Jonny Hodge, with a time of 40 minutes and Helen Aldous with a time of 44 minutes.
James Lambert, 43 minutes, and Nicola Lambert-John, 48 minutes, both of Coltishall Jaguar Running Club, were the runners-up.
The run, held on November 26, raised £600 for Breckland's Talking Newspaper.
Donations were also made to Raynet, the amateur radio enthusiasts who helped man the checkpoint, and First Aid Support Thetford.
A special mention goes to Santa Claus, riding on Rudolph's back, who completed the course in a creditable 1 hour 21 minutes. Sandie Jardine donned the weighty costume.
