FESTIVAL OF RUNNING LTD AND TRINITY PARK EVENTS
Fit East is joining forces with the Festival of Running to create a sporting spectacular with new racing challenges in Ipswich next year.
The annual Fit East Festival, which has been held at Trinity Park for the last three summers, is set to be even bigger and better when it returns on Saturday July, 4 2020, bringing goat yoga, Zumba and a colour run.
At next year's event - to be known as the Ipswich Festival of Running at Fit East - attendees will be given the chance to run a specially designed and expertly decorated running course as part of the attractions.
The new running course will be created by the team behind the successful Henham Park Festival of Running, which took place earlier this year on the Latitude site near Southwold.
The races will include a 5k breakfast run for early risers, a chip-timed 5k and 10k, and a 1k family fun run which is free for all festival entrants.
You will also have the chance to get covered in paint during the evening's colour run - before some of the region's DJs turn the festival up a notch for an amazing night of music, drinks and dancing.
These running events will be in addition to the usual fitness activities hosted by Fit East - including Zumba, boxing, goat yoga and a variety of other heart-pumping activities for all abilities.
Gareth Samuel, the Festival of Running's marketing co-ordinator, said: "We're really excited to be integrating with Fit East in this way to bring the people of Ipswich a massive fitness and health festival with the right messages of inclusivity, mental and physical health at its core.
"Everything from the course design and huge list of amazing activities, to the site decoration, the bars and music will make this an event not to be missed by anyone."
Charlotte Rossiter, from Trinity Park Events, added: "We are delighted to be welcoming Festival of Running to give people the chance to run around the park and bring a new dimension to what has been a really popular event here at Trinity Park.
"We are confident that building on the fantastic activities we've had in previous years, this partnership will make next year's event a really special one."
Registration is open online and friends and family of runners can buy half price Fit East tickets.
