JUST 100 places remain in the Simplyhealth Great East Run as the hugely popular half marathon looks set to sell out for the third year in a row. 

Entries to the half marathon event, which takes place on Sunday 22 September in Ipswich, have been in huge demand after the entry limit was increased to 4,000 following last year’s successful event.

The Simplyhealth Great East Run replaced the successful Ipswich Half Marathon in 2017 and is staged in partnership with Suffolk County Council, Ipswich Borough Council and Ipswich JAFFA Running Club, and has now grown to be the biggest half marathon in East Anglia.

Thousands of participants have the chance to be their greatest by taking on the 13.1 mile challenge this Autumn, which offers a scenic tour of the Suffolk countryside before returning back into Ipswich town centre.

Runners start on Russell Road, before heading towards the waterfront and out towards Freston, passing under the Orwell Bridge, with the finish line alongside Ipswich Town FC’s Portman Road stadium.
