By Steve June 23rd, 2017

Bury is getting its own running festival, full details below.


Join us this summer for the inaugural
St Eds' Running Festival!

We hope that your and your members are having a successful race season, and that you'll be adding our inaugural St Eds' Running Festival to your calendars!

St Eds' Runs - the Unique Bars Running Festival will be held at Abbeycroft Leisure's new Skyliner Leisure Centre in Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds. There will be 10k, half marathon, marathon and fun run options available to suit all ages and abilities on Sunday 29 October. 

We're running an early bird entry fee system whereby our first ten entrants will receive a FREE race belt worth £10 - this is in addition to benefit from our rock-bottom early bird prices, which run until Friday 23 June and will see members paying just:

  • £5 to run the 10k;
  • £10 to participate in the half marathon;
  • £15 to go the full 26.2 miles in the marathon, and;
  • £3 to compete in the fun run, with a family ticket (one adult, two children) for £7.

All our races are chip timed, with medals and refreshments for all finishers. We have applied for a UK Athletics race licence.The festival is held in aid of Bury Town Pastors and West Suffolk Hospital's My WiSH charity.




Also open for entries is a new festival, RecoverRace! Held on Sunday 30 July in Risby, near Bury St Edmunds. The festival offers 12k, half marathon and fun runs so there really is something for everyone to compete in. Held on a beautiful rural estate in Risby, this inaugural race festival will suit all ages and abilities. 

Following that we have Mildenhall Tri - Abbeycroft Leisure Triathlon Festival on Sunday 13 August. With Sprint and Sprint+ distances available in triathlon, duathlon and aquathlon, there really is something to suit all ages and abilities! 

Also open for entries is HaverTri - the Adams Harrison Triathlon Festival, which is held on Sunday 1 October at Haverhill Leisure Centre in aid of Haverhill Scouts and Guides.
