More than 160 runners braved chilly conditions on Sunday as the second Honour Run through Rendlesham Forest was held in aid of the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.
The run, which took participants on a stretch past the Ministry of Defence base at Woodbridge, raised cash to support Suffolk-based servicemen and women, both retired and current.
Mandi Cox-Osborne, Suffolk community fundraiser for the Legion, said: "The event went really well. We were lucky with the weather - it was perfect running conditions.
"Thank you to eveyone who ran or donated money to the British Legion."
