Get active, be active and stay active.
That was the message being urged onto show-goers of all ages and abilities at the Suffolk Sport Village.
The interactive zone was filled with more than 30 different sports and activities for people to try out, including archery, tennis, handball, cricket, boxing and bowls.
Kate Wooldridge, chairwoman of Ipswich JAFFA Running Club, said: “It’s the first time we’ve had a presence at the Suffolk Show and it’s been absolutely brilliant.”
The volunteers had a 150 metre route set-up for runners to either time themselves or race against a friend.
