A record number of runners took part in the Carnival fun run in Cromer last week.

The annual race around town, which is organised by North Norfolk Beach Runners and this year attracted 156 entries, is one of the highlights of a week of festivities.

Competitors had the option of completing either one or two one-and-a-half mile laps.

First home was 14-year-old Sam Cooper, of North Norfolk Harriers, in a time of 8 minutes 45 seconds. He was quickly followed by Thomas O'Reilly, 13, and Dylan White, 10, in second and third respectively.

And 11-year-old Holly Lathwell, from Luton AC, was first female home in fourth place, with a time of nine minutes and 14 seconds.
