PUPILS at West Walton Primary School and Ramnoth Junior School in Wisbech, put their running shoes on to take part in Tesco's Great School Run.

The Mayor of Wisbech, Councillor David Oliver, sent pupils on their way at Ramnoth School for their run. All the pupils had to complete a two mile distance and did so by running, walking or jogging 12 laps of the school playing field.

Meanwhile, all the children at West Walton School competed a certain distance of the school field compared to their age - from half a lap for nursery children to four laps for Year 6 pupils. They were joined by their parents and school staff for the walk, while the school association provided refreshments.

Felicity Walsh, secretary at West Walton School, said: "It was very well received and the children had a great time."
