A school in Dereham has hosted the Mid-Norfolk cross country trials, bringing together runners from across the region.
Neatherd High School, which has been hosting the sports event since 1985, greeted more than 120 pupils from five different schools on Tuesday as they each took part in a variety of different races on the Neatherd moor.
The top eight finishers from each race have now qualified to represent Mid-Norfolk in the county trials held at Sloughbottom Park in Norwich on January 23.
Of the 48 runners heading to the Norfolk trials, 18 are from Neatherd, 12 Northgate, 13 Litcham and 5 from Iceni.
The runners will be looking to qualify for the Nationals held in a different county later on this year.
