Fun run at Sutton Hoo

You may have been for a walk around Sutton Hoo, but have you ever taken a run through the spectacular scenery of the site?

On Sunday 29 September 2019 Sutton Hoo's fundraising Fun Run returns, raising money for the exciting changes which form part of our National Lottery Heritage Fund funded project.

After a successful first year, the Sutton Hoo 5K Fun Run is back by popular demand, and with an all-new route to try out! Taking you on a dramatic course past the Royal Burial Ground, through the valleys and deep into the heart of the woodland, there’s no better way to experience the Sutton Hoo landscape.

As the route travels through the countryside, the terrain will vary over the whole course from woodland paths, gravel to tarmac roads. Anyone familiar with the site will know that there are no large mountains to scale but you will be going up and down the valleys, so there will be some incline to challenge yourselves on.

Whether you take part to challenge yourself or just for fun, you’ll be in for an exhilarating run. All ages and abilities are welcome as well as canine friends! Participants under 16 are more than welcome to join as well, but will need to either be accompanied by a parent or guardian, or provide written permission.

There will be a timing clock at the end to see how well you did and a medal for completing the course.

Whatever your reason, the aim is to have fun - and all whilst you’re helping to support us with our ‘Releasing the Sutton Hoo Story’ major project, transforming your experience of Sutton Hoo.

The race itself will begin at 9.00am with registration opening at 8.00am.

The café will be open throughout the entire event for hot and cold food and drinks – a perfect reward for finishing, perhaps?

Pre-booked £12.50 adults £6 kids, £30 family

On the day £15 adults £7.50 kids, £40 family

There are only 350 available – so book yours soon!

All of the money from your entry will be going directly towards our fundraising goal for our National Lottery Heritage Fund Project, helping us to transform Sutton Hoo.

If you want to sign up, you can book your place via our online booking system over on our events page; you will then be sent your confirmed e-ticket as well as a Customer Information Sheet (CIS) containing all you need to know.
