The run was one of a number of sports themed activities which took place at New Road Primary School in Whittlesey on Friday.

The school’s efforts raised more than £100 for Sport Relief.

Favian Peres, PE co-ordinator, said: “The pupils looked fabulous dressed in their sports clothing and outfits and really rose to the fundraising challenge.

“New Road has a great family atmosphere and this is certainly felt strongest when the whole school comes together to raise money for good causes and the local community.”
