Parkrun events

Parkrun organise free, weekly, 5km timed runs around the world that are open to everyone. They are safe and easy to take part in. These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and we encourage people of every ability to take part; walk, jog or run the route the only competition is you.

They take place everyone Saturday morning at 9am and there are four parkruns in East Suffolk that you could try out; Felixstowe, Kesgrave, Lowestoft and Sizewell. There’s even a junior parkrun in Kesgrave every Sunday.

To take part, simply register on the Parkrun website and then turn up to one of your friendly Parkrun venues.

Honour Run

We have teamed up with the Suffolk Royal British Legion and Army Welfare Team to organise a 5km and 10km run. The inaugural Honour Run took place in 2018 and raised over £2,500 for the Suffolk Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. People chose to walk, jog and run the course which took place in Rendlesham Forest.

The 2019 event will take place on Sunday 20 October in Rendlesham Forest it will again raise money for the Suffolk British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Rendlesham Forest was established during the First World War when Britain had an increasing demand for timber. It helped to say thank you to the World War 1 generation who served and made sacrifices, to help change the world for the better.

By taking part and fundraising, participants helped veterans in the forces community gain the skills and self-belief to transform their lives as they recover from physical and mental challenges.

Entries will be open soon.
