Informazioni Perkins Great Eastern Run

The Perkins Great Eastern Run in Peterborough is growing in reputation. It’s one of the fastest growing half marathons in the country and each year the race attracted record participants against a backdrop of several races reporting a decrease in entry numbers or static take-up at best.

The Perkins Great Eastern Run is a running event that takes place every year in Peterborough, United Kingdom, generally in mid-October. The event returned in 2006 after a 10-year absence and is rapidly gaining popularity. Currently, there are three races in the whole event: Half Marathon – A 21.0975-kilometre (13.1094 mi) race which winds its way through the city’s streetsDespite its name, the Great Eastern Run is not a part of the Great Run series of events, which includes the Great North Run. 

This year’s Perkins Great Eastern Run route is the same as in 2012 following feedback from runners and key organising partners. The new route gives people better spectator views as well as runners a chance to improve on their previous personal best times. It was also the first time the Perkins Great Eastern Run started and finished on the Embankment (previously started on Long Causeway).
