More than 60 runners took part in a charity fun run organised by Fitness Focus in Thaxted and Clavering.
Each year, the company hosts the run on Christmas Eve to raise money for a chosen charity. This year, they supported The Maddi Foundation, and raised £1,000.
Danny Quelch, from Fitness Focus Clavering, hosted the warm-up and the circuit was about 5.5 miles around Ford End and Clavering.
Participants were welcomed back from the run by a barbecue supplied by Alan Carr from Nisa in Newport.
In 2016, Maddi Thurgood, who lives in Toppesfield, was diagnosed with SPG15, a degenerative neuro disease.
Vicki Quelch, owner of Fitness Focus, said: “Maddi’s mum, Carina contacted us in September to ask us to help keep Maddi’s strength up. We were delighted to work with her and keep her strong.”
