Ely Tri Club Runfest

Date: 27/09/2020

Location: Palace Green, Ely

Website: link

The Run Fest started out as just the Ultra event, and in 2014 became the Run Fest and added two other distances on the same day. In 2019 we added the "Let's Get Moving 10k" in conjunction with East Cambs District Council to encourage people to move up from the Couch to 2k programmes. You now have the choice of the 10km, Half Marathon, Marathon or Ultra. It’s flat, the route is well marked and there is support on the course. With a few obstacles (steps, stiles, cattle grids) along the way, this is more of an adventure / fun (yes you read right) course than one to chase a PB on.

Please note that all Ely Tri Club events are plastic free. You will need to bring your own water cup, bottle or hydration systems to refill from water bowsers on the route.

Let's Get Moving 10km
Started in 2019, there is now a 10km course along the same route. There are no prizes or awards this year, it is all about encouraging people to move up from the 5km distance and take their running to the next level. East Cambs District Council is working in conjunction with Ely tri Club to promote running as a good way of keeping active. Success in 2019 was fantastic for so many people!
