More than 480 runners took part in the run this year, which sees runners from across the county tackle a 5km course through Kesgrave and Grange Farm before enjoying a party in The Bell Inn pub.

Organised in part by Bell Inn landlady and East Suffolk councillor Debbie McCallum, the event commemorates the death of Kate Moyes, a popular BT worker who died in 2005 from an aggressive form of cancer.

It also raises money for Ipswich's St Elizabeth Hospice, this year raising nearly £1,800.

Speaking at the event, Mrs McCallum said: “It is a fantastic event and lots of fun.

“This year we had 487 runners and next year we know we can do better, we want to hit the 500 mark.”

Ipswich Jaffa runner Ollie Watson finished first in this year's event in 16 minutes 58 seconds, but had to battle hard against the likes of Banana Man to claim his spot in the glory books.

Jayne Chappels was the first woman to cross the line after 19 minutes 57 seconds, while Ross Hammond was the first youngster to claim his medal after 19 minutes and 8 seconds.
