Orwell Park School near Ipswich has held its annual charity fun run.
More than 350 fundraisers took part in the event, which featured three races for pupils, family members, staff and amateur runners.
Jim Last of the Framlingham Flyers Running Club won the competitive 10k adult race.
There was a 1.5k junior race, in which grandparents also took part, and a colourful and creative 3k fancy dress race. Participants ranged from US president Donald Trump to superhero Wonder Woman.
The event raised vital funds for St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich, Meningitis Research Foundation and Facing The World, which offers surgery to children with facial disfigurements.
Headmaster Adrian Brown said: “The school works for three charities every year: a local charity, a national charity and an international charity.
“I am proud of the way pupils work so hard.”
