More than 900 students and staff took part in the Leman 4 Life charity fun run at the Sir John Leman High School in Beccles.
With the warm up completed and rising excitement and anticipation, the third Leman 4 Life race was underway on Tuesday last week.
This year the guest starter was ‘Lauren Lou’; the Cancer Research pink three wheeler support car, provided by Gary Bennett and Adrian Nowell.
Weather conditions were perfect for running or walking the five kilometre course around the school field and with more 900 students and staff participating this year, it was the biggest turn out to date.
“The fancy dress costumes this year were amazing, ranging from bat girls, chocolate heroes, cow girls, horses and a gingerbread character, who you would never have guessed is a national ladies rugby team star.

The organisers would like to thank their partners, Beccles Friends of Cancer Research UK and Bungay Black Dog Running Club, also to Britvic for supplying the squash, Travis Perkins for the generator and Tesco for the fruit.
