The Great East
Run will return to Suffolk on Sunday 26th September 2021

running highlight of the year is back. Each year 4,000 runners line up for an
incredible running celebration, with cheering crowds and our famous
entertainment zones providing the soundtrack to your run.

Whether you do
it for a challenge, to fundraise, or simply for fun, it’s not to be missed!

The event,
which has sold out every single year since it launched in 2017, takes runners
on a picturesque, closed road tour through Ipswich Town Centre, Ipswich
waterfront and into the beautiful Suffolk countryside before runners cross the
finish line at Ipswich Town Football Club. Whatever your pace or motivation, be
part of East Anglia’s biggest & best Half Marathon.
