Almost 700 runners rocked up to The Heath on Sunday to take part in the annual Royston in Blue 5k run.
The race, which saw competitors dress in bonkers blue costumes, was arranged to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Organiser Lisa Thompson thanked all those who took part in the event on the Facebook page.
She said: “A big thank you to everyone who turned up and ran or walked.
“Thanks to my wonderful committee, the volunteers, Royston Runners, Freman College and Meridian School, Toby Snowden and the Heath.

Local photographer Clive Porter was so touched by the event, he has decided to sell copies of the prints he took in Hogg’s Coffee Shop, and donate proceeds to the charity.
