More About The Race

The Perkins Great Eastern Run is one of the fastest-growing half marathons in the UK - proudly supported by Heart and organised by Peterborough City Council.

It's a great flat route through through the historic city centre of Peterborough.

There's no shortage of support either! Local residents and spectators traditionally line the course to cheer you on your way.

There's something for everyone!

Anna's Hope 5k Fun Run

If the half marathon's not for you - why not choose the 5k Fun Run instead?

Local charity, Anna's Hope , is the official charity supporting the race and it is open for anyone to enter. The charity was inspired by Anna Olivia Hughes, who tragically died from a brain tumour aged only three years and eight months in 2006.

It is dedicated to giving hope to children and young people in the region diagnosed with a brain tumour and helps over 100 children each year.

If you're a school, you can also enter The Anna’s Hope Schools Challenge for the chance to win fantastic prizes!
