A primary school flung open its gates to welcome children to its annual mini-marathon.

A total of 780 runners from Wroxham, Cranbourne, Little Heath, Ladbrooke, St Giles, Pope Paul and Brookmans Park primary schools took part in the event at Oakmere Primary School

The course tested the children's determination and resilience, with Wroxham Year 6 pupil Kieran Lee coming first with a time of 11 minutes and 52 seconds.

In the younger age group, Oakmere school Year Four pupil Liam Hummel crossed the finishing line in first place.

Headteacher Julie Lilly said: "It's been an unbelievable day. Huge thanks to the children, staff and parents of all the schools for joining in the fun and the inclusive ethos of the Oakmere Mini Marathon."
