It was a record-breaking turn out at the ninth annual Kesgrave 5k fun run.
More than 450 people of all ages took part in the race and helped raise £1,722 for St Elizabeth Hospice.
The event was held in memory of Kate Moyes, 29, who died in August 2005 after a battle with cancer.
Teenage runners took centre stage this year, with 14-year-old Nathan Goddard crossing the finish line first at 16 minutes 54 seconds, and 15-year-old Amy Graham was the fastest female at 19 minutes 53 seconds.
Organiser Debbie McCallum said: “The atmosphere was fantastic, the weather was brilliant, everyone enjoyed themselves and there were a lot of people on the streets watching the runners.”
