About The Race

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!

Last year, the course was clocked as the eighth fastest in the UK for men and fourth fastest for women, with eight of the top ten men recording personal best times and the top six finishing women all recording personal bests. 

During 2018, ten men beat a time of 63.60 in six UK races - one of which was the Perkins Great Eastern Run. Similarly, ten women beat 73.30 in six UK races, with one in Peterborough.

This year will see the winning prize rise from £750 to £1,000

Anna's Hope 5K Fun Run

If the half marathon distance isn't for you, why not take part and run the 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.
