New University proud to support popular half marathon and fun run
ARU Peterborough is to be a key sponsor of the Great Eastern Run, which will take place in the City on 16 October.
The run’s half marathon and 5km route will pass by the newly opened University building on Bishop’s Road, phase 1 of the University Quarter development.
Over 5,000 runners are expected to participate in the race which is being staged for the first time since 2018. 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.
There is still time to enter the race and start training.
Professor Ross Renton ARU Peterborough Principal said:
Aaron Murrell, Director for organisers Good Running Events, said:
