Running in Peterborough

Take advantage of the fresh spring air by joining a series of free morning and lunchtime runs in Peterborough.

The runs will leave the Embankment Athletics Track, in Bishop's Road, Peterborough, every Wednesday for 10 weeks from 3rd May.

Morning runs are from 7.30am to 8.30am and the lunchtime sessions from 12noon to 1pm.

The runs are part of the Healthy Peterborough campaign and everyone is welcome to attend and all abilities will be catered for.

Running and exercise can be part of living a healthier lifestyle and residents can find out more advice on how to live healthier for longer here.

Annette Joyce, Peterborough City Council service director for city services and communications, said: "These sessions were well received and attended last year so we were very keen to run them again in 2017."

"The hour long sessions are suitable for everyone, even if you’ve never thought about taking up running before. The hour can be based on the athletics track with the option to run out further into the city centre if you want to stretch your legs a little more."

There is no need to book in advance - just simply turn up with your trainers and running clothes.

Changing facilities and showers will be available at the athletics track and for further information you can email

If you have really got the running bug then entries for the Perkins Great Eastern Run 2017 and Anna's Hope 5km fun run on Sunday 8th October are now open, which are both supported by Heart. See more here.
