The Simplyhealth Great East Run course follows a scenic route that is suitable for runners of all abilities.
Starting and finishing on Russell Road, runners pass the prestigious Willis building designed by Lord Foster before heading through the beautiful Holywells Park and travelling down to Ipswich's vibrant waterfront.
The route then passes Felaw Maltings on the way out and back along Wherstead Road, where participants will see Fox's Marina, Suffolk Food Hall and go twice under the iconic Orwell Bridge into Freston.
On returning to the town centre, runners will head towards Ipswich Town FC's Portman Road stadium, passing the statues of two football legends, Sir Bobby Robson and Sir Alf Ramsey, before crossing the finish line in the stadium's practice pitch and being welcomed by hundreds of supporters in the stands.
On the course you will find CLIF Bar feed stations with CLIF Shot Energy Gels and CLIF Bloks Energy Chews. This station will be around the 8 mile point on the course.
The family reunion area can be found in the event village, where there will be a number of flying flags displaying letters of the alphabet. Arrange to meet your loved ones under the flying flag displaying the first letter of your surname i.e. if your name is John Smith, you should arrange to meet under the 'S' flag.
