Event Update - January 2022

It is with sadness that we announce the Great East Run will not take place in 2022 or in the future.   

Over the past 4 years we’ve worked incredibly hard with our partners to bring a first class Half Marathon event to Suffolk.  From the first firing of the start gun in 2017 to the last finisher crossing the line in 2019, we’ve enormously enjoyed delivering the Great East Run and seeing thousands achieve their goals and raise significant funds for charity.    

Unfortunately, following the covid enforced cancellations in 2020 and 2021, as well as ongoing operational challenges, it is no longer viable for us to stage the event. 

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to Suffolk County Council for their excellent support, Jaffa Run Club for their considerable expertise, and of course, to everyone who has taken part or supported the event.
