Where and when
Chantry Park, Hadleigh Rd, Ipswich IP2 0BS, UK
The MoRun events proudly support Movember, the only charity tackling men's health on a global scale, year round.
Runners will take on 1 lap for the 5k route, and 2 laps for the 10k. Previous event results can be seen here.
Ipswich's largest town park, Chantry Park, is a great location for this MoRun. With rolling parkland and a variety of wildlife, this undulating route has mixed terrain between paths and trails. Some sections of the course are uneven and muddy, so the course is suitable for buggy runners but not wheelchair users. There will be marshals located around the course as well as markers every kilometre.
