Organisers labelled the morning as an "excellent" workout, hoping its successful launch will inspire more people to get involved.

Event director Graham Rodgers said: "I am very excited that Ipswich Parkrun have teamed up with One Life Suffolk who have introduced the Parkrun as a regular monthly health walk on the last Saturday of every month.

"I really do feel that the walking group initiative will be the start of a great journey for many people, opening the door to a more active lifestyle.

"Of course, you can walk, jog and run the event every Saturday."

Parkrun sessions are free to attend every Saturday morning in the park from 9am.
