Trowbridge Park saw 220 fun runners doing their bit on Sunday when they took part in Sport Relief Mile events.
Participants had the choice to do the one mile, three mile or six-mile circuit with Active Trowbridge, the town’s park club and Avon Valley Runners organising the activities. A DJ also performed in the park’s bandstand.
Hayley Bell, from Active Trowbridge, said: “It was really good considering the mixed weather. We welcomed people of all ages and it was a lot of fun.
"There were runners in superhero costumes and onsies while we even had Darth Vader.”
Pupils from Oasis Academy Longmeadow raised £200 through events at the Trowbridge school.
Children took part in the Sport Relief Mile and fun aerobics sessions.
And Newtown Primary School, Trowbridge, raised £450 when all years took part in the Sport Relief Mile, which saw them do 13 laps around the grounds.
