About 30 people either walked or ran around the course to raise money for their own organisations or for charity.

Cromer town councillor Phil Harris said: “This is the first year we are doing it and we want to build on the success.

“North Norfolk District Council lent us the field and the Old Rock Shop Bistro supplied the water.”

The Goodall family from Oxfordshire, who are on holiday, enjoyed exploring a fire engine.

Meanwhile, Chris Hele, from Cromer fire station, brought along the engine, and took part in the run with wife Sam and daughter Isla, four.

He said: “We like to support community events.”

Most of the children taking part were from Cromer’s Seaview Pre-School.
