The Great Eastern Run has received an extra boost with Savills becoming the latest company to back the race which will take place in the city on Sunday October 16.

The run’s half marathon and 5km route will pass by the Savills offices, based on St Johns Street in Peterborough. Over 5,000 runners are expected to participate in the race which is being staged for the first time since 2018.

William Rose, head of commercial at Savills Peterborough, comments: “Its’ fantastic that the Great Eastern Run is back after a four year hiatus. As an office we are very pleased to be supporting the event as one of its sponsors and look forward to cheering for everyone on the day from the Savills water station. Best of luck to all those taking part.”

The route, which starts and finishes at the embankment, takes runners to the north of the city and Werrington. The course is the second flattest in the country and on closed roads, making it attractive to runners hoping for a fast time.

Aaron Murrell, Director for organisers Good Running Events said: “We are incredibly excited to have Savills on board as one of the sponsors of the Great Eastern Run. We have met the team on several occasions this year – and are looking forward to their support of the event, as well as them greeting the runners at the water station they are supporting.”

Many runners in the event will be raising vital funds for charity including Sue Ryder Thorpe hall Hospice and Anna's Hope.

There is still time to enter the race and start training.
