Sue Ryder returns as charity partner for Great Eastern Run


Great Eastern Run announces Sue Ryder as charity partner for 2022

A popular fixture in the race calendar in 2022 in its 40th anniversary year, the popular Great Eastern Run  - now with new organisers Good Running Events - will return this autumn and see leading club athletes and charity fun runners tackle the fast, flat route through the streets of Peterborough. 

Good Running Events and Sue Ryder will be working together to offer charity runners the chance to run the Half Marathon at the Great Eastern Run, and raise funds for this fantastic charity in the process.  

Director of Good Running Events Aaron Murrell said: “This is fantastic news – that we are announcing Sue Ryder as the latest Event Charity Partner that we are working with. We have met the hospice team several times since taking over the event earlier this year, and are really looking forward to having a large team of runners participating with us in October, in aid of this brilliant charity and supporting their vital work at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough, and beyond.

“I’m personally really looking forward to seeing hundreds of the blue ‘Team Sue Ryder’ vests on the closed roads of Peterborough City Centre on October 16.”  

Senior Community Fundraiser at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, Nilesh Patel, said: “Everyone at Sue Ryder is absolutely thrilled that we are partnering with Good Running Event’s Great Eastern Run for 2022.  

"The local hospice to the route, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice really hopes we can turn Peterborough’s streets a sea of blue on Sunday, October 16, where we hope hundreds of runners will chose to pull on the famous ‘Team Sue Ryder’ running vest and run to raise vital funds so our care teams can fill people’s final days with love.”
