Felixstowe Coastal 10 & Great East Run
** Joint Statement from Felixstowe Road Runners and Ipswich JAFFA **
There has been much speculation regarding the date clash between the Felixstowe Coastal 10 and the recently announced Great East Run.
Felixstowe Road Runners and Ipswich JAFFA Running Club would like to clarify the situation for all concerned.
At the request of the Great Run company, the Great East Run is scheduled for Sunday 24th September in order to fit in with their existing series of events. It was not possible to communicate the reason for the date clash ahead of the launch. Felixstowe Road Runners are excited and support Great Run company bringing the Great East Run to Ipswich. Following ongoing conversations between both clubs, we are pleased to announce that the Felixstowe Coastal 10 will take place Sunday 10th September, two weeks before the Great East Run. This will make it ideally placed to be a pre-race sharpener or long training run for people wishing to do both events.
Both clubs would like to take this opportunity to encourage all members to take part in and support both events, either by running or volunteering.
We are proud to be part of such a rich running calendar for the region, with the benefits this brings for all our members.
