A number of parents also took part, with all money raised going to the Race For Life charity.

The final totals raised by the schools were: Oakway £373.37, Victoria Primary Academy £581 and Ecton Village £152.35, with the total rounded up to £1,110.

The event was a great success, with Wellingborough mayor Malcolm Waters in attendance to present medals to the runners.
