Route information
Terrain: Paved paths and roads
Elevation: Flat
The course starts and finishes inside Colchester Zoo. Runners will be able to see Elephants, Lions, Cheetahs, Hyenas, Bears, Baboons and Giraffes to name but a few.
The route heads out of the zoo on a closed road loop which is well marshalled and signposted.
This is a flat course and often considered as a potential PB course. However it goes without saying the stunning thing about this event is the animals.

The start and finish were a little bunched up meaning there was no option to have a final dash at the end but overall it was a nice route.

Major traffic jam to get in to the zoo. Took 30 minutes from Ipswich to Stanway then 40 minutes from Stanway to Zoo park up ( only 2 miles ) all vehicles had to go through Zoo main entrance. (This wasn't your first ever run at this location so traffic management must have been reviewed in the past) We left what we thought was plenty of time, leaving Ipswich 7.20am. No time to warm up and rushing to start not knowing the site layout. As a member of Ipswich Jaffa Running Club( over 300 members, only six entered) I will not be promoting the Half Marathon. The course, marshalling and Zoo visit afterwards was first class which made the traffic fiasco early in the morning all the more disappointing. Stephen Baldock

My first runthrough, also my first 10k race. Excellent marshalls and facilities. Nice friendly warmup really got the blood pumping. The tshirts were very tight fitting but nice quality. Lots of free nutrition afterwards and a day at the zoo was a nice touch.
