The new organisers of the Great Eastern Run in Peterborough are teaming up with another local charity.

Good Running events have taken over the city’s popular half marathon and are bringing it back on Sunday October 16.

They’re continuing its strong fundraising role and have announced they’ll now also be working with Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, with Stamford based Anna's Hope already announced as the charity for the 5k Fun Run.

A popular fixture in the race calendar in 2022 and in its 40th anniversary year, the popular event will see leading club athletes and charity fun runners tackle the fast, flat route through the streets of Peterborough.

Good Running Events and Sue Ryder will be working together to offer charity runners

the chance to run the half marathon and raise funds for this fantastic charity in the process.

Director of Good Running Events Aaron Murrell commented: “This is fantastic news – that

we are announcing Sue Ryder as the latest Event Charity Partner that we are working with.

We have met the hospice team several times since taking over the event earlier this year,

and are really looking forward to having a large team of runners participating with us in

October, in aid of this brilliant charity and supporting their vital work at Sue Ryder Thorpe

Hall Hospice in Peterborough, and beyond.”

“I’m personally really looking forward to seeing hundreds of the blue ‘Team Sue Ryder’ vests

on the closed roads of Peterborough City Centre on October 16th.”

Senior Community Fundraiser at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, Nilesh Patel, said,

“Everyone at Sue Ryder is absolutely thrilled that we are partnering with Good Running

Event’s Great Eastern Run for 2022. As the local hospice to the route, Sue Ryder Thorpe

Hall Hospice really hopes we can turn Peterborough’s streets a sea of blue on Sunday 16th

October where we hope hundreds of runners will chose to pull on the famous ‘Team Sue

Ryder’ running vest and run to raise vital funds so our care teams can fill people’s final days

with love.”
