Sunday saw Three Counties Running Club host their fourth annual Santa Run in Wisbech Park.

It was a fresh day but the sun shone on all the runners and volunteers.

The 54-entry 1k event was for all abilities with children, adults and non-runners all dressed up in festive clothing taking part.

The club would like to say a special thank you to everyone who supported and volunteered, all the runners, The Mayor, walking football, Finchy’s Hog Roast, Melvin Green and Active Fenland.

Whilst some of the club were having a festive run, seven members took part in the Thetford Trails 10k race which was the 1st in the 10k Winter Series of three events.

The race starts and finishes at High Lodge and takes in the beautiful trails of Thetford forest. The single loop race was pretty much all up hill and even with the sun out it was still rather chilly in places.
