Runners have raised hundreds of pounds for the Royal British Legion (RBL) Poppy Appeal.
The Clevedon Poppy Run saw more than 70 people gather at the seafront on Sunday morning before stting off on the 5km route to the Salthouse Fields.
A minute’s silence was held at the start and a total of around £900 was raised for the poppy appeal during the event.
Organiser Tracey-Anne Bath said: “I am so proud of every single one of them for raising much-needed funds for a cause which is close to many of our hearts.
“A special thank you to Tom Bullimore PT, owner of Bull Fitness, who gave up his Sunday morning to herd the troops and get everyone safely around the course.
“Everyone earned their bacon sandwiches and chocolates at the end.”
