Old Buckenham's great race

10K in pictures
Today Old Buckenham had its first 10K road race, the aim being to raise money towards the cost of re-thatching the village's All Saints Church. It was part of the 'Raise the Roof'campaign which has been fund-raising though all sorts of ways.
The sun shone throughout the day making it better for the organisers but the high temperatures causing some problems for the runners.
Below is a photo essay of the day giving some idea of what went on behind the scenes. You can find the technical stuff like winners, their times and photos of runners crossing the finishing line at
