Hundreds of runners descended on Hatfield Broad Oak on bank holiday Monday for the village’s 34th ten kilometre race.
Organisers said they were "overwhelmed" with the annual event's success, with more than 3000 visitors on the day and approximately 1,500 runners taking part.
As well as the 10K race, there was a one-mile fun run for children, a tea and cake hut, barbeque and a bouncy castle.
The majority of the funds raised during the day will go to St Mary's Primary School in Hatfield Broad Oak whilst other causes can apply for a donation.
Organisers predict they have exceeded the £8,500 raised last year.
