Hardy dogs and their owners took part in a chilly Boxing Day fun run.
At Bungay Common near Old Railway Road nearly 60 runners and their pets took part in the annual Boxing Day Groggy Doggy cross country run.
Across the other races, including the junior section, nearly 300 people competed.
The races were started by the town reeve Stephen Went and those in the main race were soon making a colourful ribbon around the banks of the River Waveney in bright sunshine, in muddy conditions.
They completed two laps of the picturesque course, about five miles in all, while those with dogs completed one lap.
Many took part in fancy dress with a fair few Father Christmases about and there were prizes for the best dressed and the muddiest.
The race has been organised by the Bungay Black Dog Running Club for nearly 30 years.
