They transformed themselves into women for the popular charity run in aid of the town’s Ashgate Hospice.

Many went the extra mile, squeezing themselves into lycra tights, putting flowers in their hair and even wearing women’s underwear.

Youngsters also took part in the five-mile route around Chesterfield town centre

Alison Ward-Foster, corporate and events fundraiser at the hospice, said: “We had 300 runners who had gone to lots of effort with their costumes. They looked absolutely fantastic.

“They took on the five-mile route and it was brilliant. Spectators lined the course to cheer them on and many motorists pipped their support as they made their way around. The drag race has really taken off – it is so well supported.

“We were the first hospice to really do the drag race and it has been a huge success thanks to our supporters who embrace the chance to get dressed up in drag and help the hospice.More than £30,000 was raised on the day and it will all go towards patient care here at the hospice. Thanks to everyone who took part or who came along on the day.”
