Ipswich's 5k running series has returned to Christchurch Park following a year of Covid-enforced absence. 

After a long lockdown break, The Nice Work two-lap course is "looking forward" to being back from May through to August. 

Thom Sands, marketing assistant at Nice Work, said: "With it being a series, we see returning faces each month. We begin to build relationships and it's great to catch up after a few weeks apart.

"Of course, the runners too recognise one another and begin to socialise - it's great for the community. With it being a shorter distance of 5k, usually we get new runners attending this race, which we love.

"Evening racing seems to have more of a relaxed atmosphere than Sunday racing, and we particularly find that at this race - especially as it is across Summer evenings."
