Ipswich Half Marathon 2024

Ipswich Half Marathon 2024
Following a successful 2023 event which raised more than £8,000 for Suffolk Mind and our mental health services in Suffolk, we are once again delighted to be an official Charity Partner of the Larking Gowen Ipswich Half Marathon 2024.
The race will start and finish at Portman Road Stadium – home to Ipswich Town FC. You will see runners heading down Duke Street, through Ipswich Waterfront and then along Cliff Lane. Continuing around the River Orwell, you will head to Wherstead Road, back along Grafton Way before reaching the big finish at the stadium.
The Suffolk Mind team and volunteers will be there to welcome you in the Charity Village and to cheer you along, at a dedicated Suffolk Mind cheer point along the route.
So, if you’re looking for a new challenge local to home and you are keen to support Suffolk Mind and our mission to make Suffolk the best place in the world to talk about and take care of mental health, why not sign up to run on our behalf and benefit from our special registration rates.
How to register
We have a limited number of spaces for this event and are offering competitive packages to runners choosing to fundraise for Suffolk Mind.
Any 2023 runner who raised in excess of £200 for Suffolk Mind automatically qualifies for a fully funded place, provided you pledge to endeavour to raise a minimum of £200 for our charity next year.
Please email the Fundraising team to claim your space.
All other runners will be able to register a space at the discounted price of £15 each, provided each runner pledges to endeavour to raise a minimum of £170. Plus, you will be able to purchase one Suffolk Mind running top at 20% off the RRP (we will send you a discount code with your registration confirmation).
To register, please email the Fundraising team today. Please note: to benefit from either of these packages, you must commit to setting up your Giving page on the Suffolk Mind website.
Be part of our team and make a real difference in our county
We are so proud of this year’s team of 25 runners. You could join us next year to help make a difference to mental health in Suffolk.
Here’s an example of just how much fundraising can help us:
In 2023, Jess, Graham and Robert (pictured) ran together and raised a phenomenal £1,355.65 for Suffolk Mind. This amount could enable us to provide 25 fully-funded counselling sessions, or enable us to deliver 18 Sammy Movement Sessions to support children’s mental health in primary schools.
By fundraising for Suffolk Mind, you can be sure that all profits made will be reinvested in our county.
