THE positive attitude of runners, walkers and spectators combined to help make this year’s Sudbury Fun Run the best yet, according to race organisers.

The annual Good Friday event, which has been running for the last two decades, saw crowds line the streets of Sudbury and Great Cornard to cheer on more than 500 runners and 250 walkers over the five-mile course.

Race director Lyndon Collier, a member of Sudbury Joggers, said the run, which was raising funds for Sudbury charity Helping Hands and St Nicholas Hospice Care, had received lots of encouraging feedback.

“The Sudbury Joggers have only been doing the event for the last three years and we have learned a lot in that time,” he said.

“A lot of work goes into making the event a success and I think it was the best one yet.”
