The Ipswich Half Marathon is back for a second year - and several roads are set to close for the event.

Following a successful first year, the Larking Gowen Ipswich Half Marathon will return to the streets of the Suffolk town on Sunday, September 17.

Runners will pass iconic locations including the Ipswich Waterfront, Holywells Park and the River Orwell.

The event will kick off at 9.30am at Portman Road, but road closures will be in place from an hour before.
