Successive years have seen levels of participation continue to rise, with 2018 the most popular race to date with over 1,500 runners signing up.

Commenting on the charity partnership, Ipswich Building Society CEO, Richard Norrington said “We are delighted to invite charities to apply to be the official race charity partner for next year’s 10k race and benefit from this popular event, which has become an annual fixture among the Suffolk running community. The selected charity will be able to fundraise through their allocation of free places and also raise awareness of their work in the community.”
