Description

St Eds' Running Festival returns in 2018, offering 10k, half marathon, full marathon and family fun run routes from Skyliner Sports Centre in the jewell of the crown of Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds!

We will be applying for a UK Athletics license for all our races, and as such our races will adhere to UKA rules and regulations (even if not UKA licensed we will be ARC licensed and applying the same regulations). Courses have been officially measured. All races will be chip timed for fast and accurate results. You will receive a full race briefing ahead of the race - this will include your number. There is a £2 discount on the final race price for all UK Athletics member when supplying their membership number upon entering.

The festival will be raising money for local good causes included Bury Town Pastors.

Start

You will assemble at Skyliner Sports Centre ahead of a mass race start, crossing the chip timing mats to start your race. There will be water stations approximately every 5km/3 miles in addition to water and food at the finish. Our routes will be marshalled as thoroughly as we can manage, and every turn on the route will be well signposted. While we will endeavour to ensure you have a fast and uninterrupted run, the courses will be taking place on quiet public roads that will be open to traffic. There will be toilets, lockers and changing facilities available at the leisure centre.

Note there will be a diverge point here where the half marathon runners will turn left. After heading down this road you will turn left onto a footpath, which will bring you out in Rushbrooke.
