Renegade Runner Karl Baxter runs 24 hours and 107 laps of The Walks at Parkrun celebrations in King's Lynn

The majority of Renegade Runners spent the weekend in The Walks raising money for the Parkrun by taking part in the 24-hour marathon there to celebrate eight years of parkruns in King's Lynn.

The group as a collective, both young and older, ran more than 700 miles for the cause.

However the most gallant effort of the group was by Karl Baxter, an ultra runner who took part for the whole 24 hours, covering a massive 107 laps of The Walks.

On Sunday Peter Brown, one of the 61 people who ran the first parkrun in Lynn, took part in the Great North Run.

Brown started well but found the latter stages tough, however he still completed the annual event in the north east in a respectable 2 hours and 35 minutes.
