Runners will be lining up to take on one of Suffolk's most popular annual races later this month.

The Woodbridge 10k will be returning on Sunday, May 19 when hundreds of athletes will be completing the Round The Town Races, which include the 10k running race for adults and the 1.5k run for juniors.

The event, which is now in its 42nd year, has also raised more than £100,000 for charities and this year money will be going to the organisations Lapwing, Morabe, Dora Brown, Salvation Army Food Bank (Woodbridge) and Emmaus.

In previous years, the route has taken runners around a two-lap course which passes The King’s Head, The Bull, The Duke Of York, The Cherry Tree, The Anchor and The Red Lion as well as The Galley restaurant.

All places for the event have now been filled after registration took place in March.

A spokesperson for Woodbridge Shufflers running club, which organises the event, said: "The race is always incredibly popular. The race limit is 750 adults and 150 juniors and we sold out in five minutes.

"It is known as one of the best 10Ks in Suffolk as anyone who has run the race or watched as a spectator knows that it has a special atmosphere.

"Two laps up and down the streets of Woodbridge, with lots of people cheering you on and with a challenging finish at the top of Market Hill right in the heart of Woodbridge."

The event is sponsored by 25 businesses and attracts large crowds.

The spokesperson said the spectators create a 'special atmosphere' as they cheer on the runners to achieve personal bests.
