Race Limit: 500

Minimum Age: 17 years on day of race

Licence Number: pending


We plan to open entries on 1st August 2019 – 6 weeks before the race. This is intended to reduce the need to process transfers due to unforeseen diary clashes.

Price will be £18 for unaffiliated, or £16 for UKA-affiliated runners.



The course is nearly all tarmac promenade, pavement or road but between the Ferry and the Martello Tower there is a stretch of sometimes heavy shingle and so because of this we are sorry to say it is not suitable for wheelchair competitors.

The course will have two water stations and also water at the finish.


Directions & Car Parking

There is metered car parking available around the Leisure Centre, IP11 2AE for satnav. There is free car parking at Garrison Lane car park, IP11 7SH for satnav.

Please do not park in residential parking spaces and consider the environment by car sharing as much as possible.

Take the A14 to Felixstowe, then straight over the dock spur roundabout onto A154 Candlet Road, turn left at the roundabout onto A154 Garrison Lane and straight over the traffic lights continuing straight. Car parking available just before the Premier Inn, turn right at the roundabout and follow the road to the end to reach the Leisure Centre.

The start is at the bottom of Bent Hill on the promenade; a minute’s walk from the Leisure Centre and will be sign posted.



Collect your timing chip and number from the race HQ in sufficient time to reach the start. Race HQ opens at 8 am.
