The Felixstowe Fun Run in full flow.

Hundreds of runners donned fancy dress for the annual Rotary Club of Felixstowe fun run in the sunshine yesterday.

The event gave runners and walkers the opportunity to do as many laps as possible in a one hour period around a mile-long circuit centred around the Spa Pavilion.

The main charity this year was Help for Heroes and participants were given the opportunity to be sponsored on a per lap basis or for the run as a whole.

Those who entered were able to raise money for a cause of their choice if they wanted to.

As in recent years, everyone who entered was encouraged to run in fancy dress, with prizes for both the most eye-catching team and individuals.

Everyone who entered received a memento certificate on completing the course.
