Hundreds of determined runners conquered a muddy obstacle course in the name of charity this weekend.
The second SANDMAN 5km race took place at Cut Hedge Park in Halstead on Saturday and was organised by St Helena Hospice.
Organisers are predicting the event will raise around £20,000 for the charity, which supports people who have terminal illnesses and their families.
The hospice’s chief executive, Mark Jarman-Howe, 42, took on the challenge with his 14-year-old son, Austin.
He said: “It was certainly a challenge but completely worth it. It was a fantastic feeling, being able to cross the finish line with the hundreds of other participants, including my son, all in aid of the hospice.”
