Nearly 800 runners took on the popular Woodbridge 10k Round-the-Town road race in beautiful sunshine on Sunday.

A total of 663 people ran the 10k race, and 108 youngsters took part in the 1.5k junior run.  

Participants were also celebrating 40th anniversary of the event, which is one of the most popular road races in Suffolk and attracts huge crowds around the course. It hasn't taken place for two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Elodie Alderson, treasurer and committee member of event organisers Woodbridge Shufflers, said: “We're always kindly grateful to all the supporters and all the local residents for allowing us to shut the roads down. It can be an inconvenience, but we hope that they come out and join us and just have a really good day.  

“The advantage as well is that our presence in the town in this volume means that the local businesses are getting a real boost from the amount of people that are coming into the town for the race. 

“Huge thanks to all our sponsors and volunteers for making this event possible.” 

This year, funds were raised for Suffolk Motor Neurone Disease Association, Suffolk Young People’s Project (4YP), Seckford Almshouses Chapel, Jetty Lane, Project 21.
