The fundraiser, which opened March Christmas Market on Sunday, saw children and adults put on festive costumes for a good cause.

Christmas jingles got everyone in the spirit before hundreds set off on the run, including representatives from charities including Ely and Fenland Little Miracles.

Nigel Marsh, owner of Georges, said: “Every runner had their reasons to take part, ranging from personal ones to just wanting to have a good time for a good cause.”

Tony Epps, who took part in the run for the second year in a row, said: “Last year’s event was so much fun for me and my two children that we thought it would be too good to miss.”
