Bungay Black Dog runners took the glory in the Sandringham 10K.

Some 1200 runners were recorded as finishers in the Total Race Timing results which measures their time with an electronic chip.

Both runners are members of Bungay Black Dog running club and were wearing their red club vests.

With a massive number of entrants the event had a slightly delayed start time moving from 9.30am to 9.45am.

Race director Aaron Murrell said: "It's been a really great day considering how many people have entered."

The first wave of runners who had predicted times of under 59 minutes, stepped up to the starting line first, with the second wave starting not long after.

The weather was misty and quite cool, perfect conditions for most runners. And before the gun, Eye of the Tiger was the theme tune for the popular warm-up. 

It was good to see all abilities involved and runners for Norfolk Vision supporting each other in the race.

Vegan runners were out in force too along with familiar faces who attend Parkrun in Hunstanton and Lynn.

Relieved finishers collected their goodie bags and a welcome delicious bar from Perkier Foods, plus a rather smart bandana and medal.
