The much-loved event is organised by the Black Dog Running Club and for the first time this year included a 10k race.

Based around the Bungay Black Dog marathon – which was first held in 1982 – the festival includes a marathon; half-marathon, 30k and 10k.

Despite a damp and dreary start to the day the rain cleared in time for the runners to begin.
