The Lowestoft Half Marathon, organised by Nicholsons Solicitors, returned for its third year on Sunday, October 7.

More than 400 runners entered this year’s 13.1 mile race, which sees competitors travel along the town’s sea front.

“The atmosphere has been incredible – the sea wall is full of spectators cheering people on.”

The event helps raise funds for Break Charity, an organisation which works to improve the lives of vulnerable children and young people across East Anglia.
