St Eds' Running Festival returns in 2019, offering 10k, half marathon, full marathon and family fun run routes from Skyliner Sports Centre in the jewell of the crown of Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds!

All races will be ARC licensed and we will be applying for a UK Athletics license for all our races. As such our races will adhere to UKA rules and regulations. Courses have been officially measured. All races will be chip timed for fast and accurate results. You will receive a full race briefing ahead of the race - this will include your number.

The festival will be raising money for local good causes including Bury Town Pastors. We would encourage you to raise money for them and you can download a sponsorship form to support your efforts once you have entered.
