Great Eastern Run

Date: 15 October 2023
Location: UK
Category: Running events

The Great Eastern Run is a major event in the UK running calendar. With a start and finish at the Embankment, the event boasts a super flat and fast route around the streets of Peterborough City centre. Don't miss it! 

Location: This year's Great Eastern Run route has been improved following feedback from runners and key organising partners. The route gives spectators better views as well as runners a chance to improve on their previous personal best times and ensures that 100% of the route is based on roads / tarmac. The route takes runners through a section of the city centre, one of the unique aspects of the course. 

In return for your support you will receive:

  • Guaranteed place in the event
  • A fundraising toolkit to give you ideas on how to reach your target
  • Support from your local Regional Fundraiser to help you with your fundraising and answer any questions about the event
  • A bespoke RAF Benevolent Fund running vest
