More than 300 people turned out for a fun run in Kesgrave raising money for St Elizabeth Hospice.
The sun shone down on the entrants as they made their way round the five kilometre course on Sunday morning.
And their efforts raised £1,439 for the Kate Moyes Memorial Fund at the hospice.
Debbie McCallum, one of the event’s organisers, said: “It was a fantastic turn out. It was perfect running weather.
“Everyone really, really enjoyed it and we’ve had so much positive feedback.”
