Tiara-wearing fundraisers were among thousands of runners, walkers and cyclists who took part in the Sarsen Trail and Neolithic Marathon.
About 2,000 participants were sponsored to run, walk or cycle the 26-miles from Avebury to Stonehenge to raise funds for the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust.
Among them were Tash Wilkinson, Tracey Sluggett, Wendy Scotford, Krysia Chrzanowski and Andrea Unwin, all from Corsham, in Wiltshire, who wore tiaras during their walk to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the charity's 50th year.
Chris Knight, from Chippenham, also took part running the full marathon dressed as the Mad Hatter.
The 23rd annual event also saw 225 cyclists taking part, and 100 dogs and their owners also joining in the fun.
Event organiser Derek Gard said: "There was a tremendous buzz. The atmosphere at Stonehenge was electric, I've never know anything like it. For a multi-disciplined event it was great to see participants encouraging each other and sharing their success."
All proceeds raised from the event on May 6 help the charity to protect Wiltshire's wildlife and natural environment.
Registration for next year's marathon will be available from January.
