Members of a river restoration trust came to the aid of injured runner on Saturday after she fell on the Gipping Valley path from Stowmarket to Ipswich.
Holly Gibson, a member of the Run For Your Life group was running along the Gipping Valley path towards Ipswich when she fell and landed awkwardly, breaking her ankle.
The incident happened at Pipps Ford and the runners had just passed members of the River Gipping Trust, who came to her aid.
She was carried back to the trust’s workers’ hut, where Spencer Greystrong, Dale Green and John Hayes came to her aid before taking her, by wheelbarrow, to the entrance of Pipps Ford and waited for her husband to arrive, who took her to hospital.
She said: “The help they gave was invaluable.

David Bartholomew, who represents the running group, said in a letter to the trust: “The men were extraordinarily friendly and helpful, ensuring Holly’s spirits remained high.”
