A group of students donned their running shoes in support of a mental health charity.
The Norwich City Half Marathon Runners Club is one of the clubs on offer for students at Dereham Sixth Form College (DSFC).
It was started three years ago by Gordana Hills, head of psychology and sociology, to encourage both exercise and charity work.
She said: "I am trying to establish this as a DSFC tradition and each year I will invite students and staff to do it and for everyone to choose which charity they would like to support."
So far the group has raised money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, East Anglian Children's Hospices and the East Anglian Air Ambulance. This year, the students chose to run for the charity MIND.
