Entry fee for Perkins Great Eastern Run 2015 rises at the end of this week

Sign up to the Perkins Great Eastern Run 2015 by the end of this week to take advantage of the reduced entry fee.

The late entry charge of an additional £2 per person for both the half marathon and Anna's Hope 5km fun run comes into force after Friday 25 September.

This year's Perkins Great Eastern Run is on Sunday 11 October and thousands of runners have already signed up to one of the UK’s fastest half marathons.

Entrants for both the half marathon and fun run aren't just from the Peterborough region, with more and more runners from all over the UK and overseas taking part since the race returned to the city in 2006.

One of those lining up in the fun run will be Peterborough City Council Leader Councillor John Holdich.

Councillor Holdich said: "I think it's fair to say my better running days are behind me but I really wanted to play a part in this year's event in my first year as city council leader.

"The 5km course can be run, jogged or walked, so there is no pressure to go out of your comfort zone when taking part.

"My wife will be joining me on the day and we have tested our ability to get around the course by walking a similar distance on the beach whilst on our holiday.

"If you want to support the race and raise money for charity then please join my wife and I in signing up as soon as you can."

Annette Joyce, service director for city services and communications at Peterborough City Council, who organise the race, said: "The numbers are looking really healthy for both the Anna's Hope 5km Fun Run and the half marathon, and there is still time to enter for both but do take advantage of the reduced entry fee.

"The charity side to the Perkin's Great Eastern Run is always extremely well supported with runners raising money for a variety of different causes.

"The Anna's Hope 5km Fun Run is the perfect opportunity to get active, socialise with the many runners and have a great time while raising money for your chosen charity."

Free training sessions have run throughout the summer for anyone wanting to step up to the challenge. The final two take place on Wednesday 23 September and Wednesday 7 October.

The sessions start at 7pm and take place at the Peterborough Embankment Athletics Track on Bishops Road.

The absolute deadline to enter the race is midnight Monday 5 October and no entries will be allowed after this date or on race day.

Entries can be made online at, by post or in person at the Visitor Information Centre in Bridge Street.

If your home address has changed since making your initial application, then remember to update your details by emailing before race packs are sent out at the end of September.
