FUNDRAISERS went the extra mile at the Princess Mary Playing Fields.

Kirklees Active Leisure held the event at the complex in Littletown to raise money for Sport Relief.

Entrants laced up their trainers and showed their support by completing one, three or six miles and money raised will help improve the lives of people in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest countries.

The event also included live dance shows, a huge Zumba class, face painting, taster athletics, bouncy castles, body zorbing and more

The winner of each race received two Huddersfield Town match tickets.
