There are just a few spaces left for the Honour Run taking place on 21 October, so if you want one, you better get your running shoes on now!

An impressive 186 participants have already signed up for fun run to help raise money for the Suffolk British Legion Poppy Appeal. There are currently 54 spaces left for the 5 km route and 10 spaces left for the 10 km route.

If you’ve missed out on a spot but still want to help us raise money for the worthy cause, we are also looking for volunteers to help us run the event on the day. If you are interested in volunteering and want to hear more about the roles we need to fill, see: www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/assets/Leisure/Honour-Run-volunteers.pdf 

You can also email us on activecommunities.scdc@eastsuffolk.gov.uk or call us on 01394 444 652.

The event is organised by Suffolk Coastal District Council and the Suffolk British Legion. It takes place on Sunday 21 October from 10am in Rendlesham Forest, which was established during the First World War when Britain had an increasing demand for timber.

The Royal British Legion is leading the nation in the Thank You movement - to say thank you to the WW1 generation who served, sacrificed and changed the world we live in today. #Thankyou100

There are two options in the Honour Run; the 5 km run, which is open to anyone who wants to walk, jog or run, and the 10 km run, which is open to anyone who wants to jog or run. Both options are off road and there will be goodie bags and medals for the runners.
