Students at staff at Wymondham College have walked, ran and hobbled the distance from Morley to Malawi to raise money for a charity in the African nation.
Those taking part completed a total of 7,385 miles by doing laps of a course around the college. The event, called the March to Malawi, was organised by teacher Dale McMorran and the school's principal's council.
The event was held last Wednesday in aid of Sparkle Malawi, a charity dedicated to changing the lives of the inhabitants of the country, which is one of the poorest in the world.
The students did as many laps as they could in their break, at lunch and during their free lessons.
Mr McMorran said: 'For everybody who took on the challenge, for everyone who decided to join the throngs of people circling the site, for everybody who wanted to make a difference, very well done. Because sometimes it is really healthy to dream big, to dare the impossible.'
