The Perkins Great Eastern Run has been officially launched as part of a new City of Festivals programme, with other highlights in Peterborough including the Heritage Festival, Armed Forces Day, Polish Day, Italian Festival, Diwali and the Christmas Festival.

The Route

This year's course will once again be mainly flat, running through the historic city centre of Peterborough.

The Perkins Great Eastern Run is an event that the people of Peterborough always get behind, so expect hundreds of spectators to line the course and cheer you on your way!

Anna's Hope 5K Fun Run

The charity Anna's Hope was inspired by Anna Olivia Hughes, who tragically died from a brain tumour aged only three years and eight months in 2006. It's dedicated to giving hope to children and young people in the region diagnosed with a brain tumour and helps over 120 children each year.
