Take on this exciting half marathon in the centre of Peterborough!

Join thousands of runners for this exciting half-marathon run through Peterborough city centre. This is a fantastic event for first-time half-marathon runners, or anyone chasing a personal best!


We’ve partnered with Good Running Events to offer you a half marathon place at The Great Eastern Run while raising vital funds for dementia research.

Spectators will line the streets to cheer you on as you run through the streets of Peterborough City Centre. This will be such an exciting event to be a part of, don’t miss out!

Do you have friends and family who would also like to support? Volunteering at this event will help Alzheimer’s Research UK gain more running places for the half marathon. If they’d like to get involved and support us by dedicating their time, they can sign up to volunteer online. Volunteering is extremely rewarding, and you don’t need any previous experience to take part.
