People in Suffolk are being invited to 'come along for the stride' as a popular festival celebrates its 10th anniversary.

This year will mark 10 years of the Suffolk Walking Festival – and organisers are promising it will be bigger and better than ever before.

With something for everybody in this year's festival, more than 100 walks are on offer between May 13 and June 4 – with a selection of brand new family walks, popular themed walks and challenge walks.

Colin Noble, Suffolk County Council leader, said: 'The event has always proved very popular and now in it's 10th year, we hope to see even more people taking part.'

The end of the 2017 Suffolk Walking Festival will coincide with the ending of Suffolk's Year of Walking, a campaign celebrating walking in Suffolk.
