Course Details

The 2k is open to all, including children in pushchairs and teams in fancy dress.

The 5k run is a chip-timed race for children aged 11+ and adults. The route winds through woodlands and fields, a great alternative to Parkrun and fantastic for C25K runners.

The 10k run is a chip-timed race, attracting runners from across the region. This route crosses woodland, fields and country lanes. It can be a great training run as part of a marathon or half marathon programme, it can be a target race for those focusing on their 10k time, and it can be an idyllic off-road setting for runners hoping to complete this distance for the first time. It is open to those aged 15+.

The Alton Water Run has a festival feel with fabulous food stalls, children’s entertainment and side stalls, a café, picnic area and playground. There is also access to acres of beautiful Suffolk countryside for bird watching, kayaking, hiking and bike riding. There is limited parking. The Alton Water Run is supported by Anglian Water alongside many other regional businesses. The run is a registered charity, raising much needed funds for the small rural schools around the reservoir – Stutton Primary School, Tattingstone Primary School, Holbrook Primary School and Holbrook Academy.



Limited parking available on a first come first served basis. New car park location. Please arrive in plenty of time. Where possible, car-sharing is advisable.
