More than 200 Tommy Cooper fans took part in a fun run to raise money for a statue of the comic in Caerphilly.
Runners sported Cooper's trademark fez hat for the run
The Tommy Cooper Society wants a permanent tribute to the entertainer in the town where he was born.
It says few people outside Caerphilly realise Cooper, who died in 1984, was born and spent his early years there.
Runners from across the UK, most wearing the comic's trade mark red fez, jogged the three-mile route near the town's castle.
Organisers hope the event will earn a place in the Guinness Book Of Records for the most Tommy Cooper look-alikes in one place.
They are trying to raise up to £50,000 to build a 9ft-high bronze statue and also to provide comic scholarships for young people wanting to follow in Cooper's size 13 footsteps
Certificates were given to all who completed the run and there was also a prize for the best Cooper look-alike.
Organiser Tudor Jones said: "Tommy Cooper fans from all over Britain turned up in his trademark fez.
"Tommy would have loved the occasion - it would have appealed to his sense of the absurd."
Fez hats were distributed among the runners
Cooper was born in Caerphilly in March 1921 in Llwyn Onn Street.
Famed for his red fez and catchphrase "just like that", he became one of the UK's most popular entertainers of the 20th century.
He died 20 years ago in April 1984 after collapsing on stage in London.
Runner Peter Hudson, 50, from Clapham, London, said: "I've been a Tommy Cooper fan all my life - it was magic to take part."
