The annual event, which is in its fifth year, returned with a new course and race headquarters this year at Portman Road - the home of Ipswich Town Football Club.

The race started on Constantine Road outside the football ground and the new course saw runners make their way through the town centre before finishing on the practice area within the stadium.

Crowds lined the streets to cheer on participants through the town centre.
