Still time to be part of the greatest race in the region

Lifestyle | Article

People still have a chance to be part of the greatest race in the region when Peterborough once again welcomes thousands of athletes, joggers and fun runners for the Great Eastern Run and fun run on Sunday 14 October.

Great Eastern Run 2007

Individuals interested in signing-up for the half-marathon or wanting to help out on the day have until Thursday (11 October) to get involved. More than 3,000 runners took to the streets of Peterborough to participate in either the half-marathon or the 5km fun run in 2006. Thousands more lined the 13.1-mile route to cheer on those taking part in what was the largest race of its kind in the eastern region. However, race organisers want to give everybody the opportunity to help make this year’s event even bigger and better.

“This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in one of the biggest sporting events in the region,” said race organiser Kathleen McGrath from Peterborough City Council. “We want to build on the success of last year’s race and give people the opportunity to get involved in the Great Eastern Run.”

An army of volunteers are required on race day from 9 am in the morning until the race finishes. It is an excellent opportunity to be part of the greatest race in the east, receive a free limited edition Great Eastern Run 2007 fleece and a souvenir T-shirt.

Marshals must be aged 16 years and over. Volunteers will be responsible for manning the route and communicating with runners and the public. Groups to help out at water stations are especially in demand.

They will be fully briefed and will be working alongside Cambridgeshire Police and city council employees to maintain the safety of everyone involved.

For further information on how to become a volunteer, contact Tim Quy on (01733) 747474 or email [email protected]

The Great Eastern Run has grown with the backing of its main sponsor Perkins Engines and others, including Advance Performance, ASICS UK Ltd and Anglian Water. It has also benefited from the enthusiasm of local running clubs, giving the sport the support it deserves as well as helping runners of all abilities.
