Hundreds of runners braved grey skies and a healthy covering of mud to raise funds for vital cancer research.

Races took place at the Norfolk Showground on Sunday, with children's and adults Pretty Muddy courses as well as five and 10-kilometre Race for Life events.

They were held in aid of Cancer Research UK.
