Ripon celebrated World Sports Day with a special Race for Life event at Ripon Grammar School.
Children from primary schools around the city were invited to the Grammar School to take part in a one - five km walk, jog or run round the school fields. The pupils each raised at least £3 in sponsorship for Cancer Research UK.
The event was organised by Ripon sports teacher Helen Mackenzie, who brought the Olympic torch she carried through Harrogate earlier this month.
