More than 3,500 runners laced up their boots and took on the half marathon.

Determined runners began their challenge on Russell Road, went through the town centre, on to Holywells Park, along the Waterfront, out of the centre passing Fox’s Marina, Suffolk Food Hall and under the Orwell Bridge. The finish line was then on the practice pitch at Ipswich Town FC’s Portman Road stadium.
