Hundreds of runners were out in blazing sunshine to take part in a popular annual road race yesterday.
Organisers of the 33rd Woodbridge 10k said the event was a “brilliant success” with crowds of spectators enjoying the warm weather to watch from the roadside.
The race’s 750 entry spaces had been booked on the day of release, with 150 further slots going to competitors in the mile-long junior race.
Roger Ackley, president of the Woodbridge Shufflers running club, which organises the event, said it had become a fashionable race and very popular with the community, businesses and pubs. “There’s a huge local interest – it’s something that many people in the town have grown up with,” he said. Entry fees and sponsorship raised £7,500 for five local and national charities.
Mr Ackley thanked the sponsors, volunteers and residents for their help.
