  • Alton Water Run 2019

    Alton Water Run 2019

    The Alton Water Run is a fantastic event, in spectacular scenery. It takes place at the beautiful Alton Water reservoir close to the Suffolk / Essex border. With runs to suit all ages and abilities, it is accessible to all. It is conveniently located, only 20 minutes from Colchester and 10 minutes from Ipswich.

    It’s the perfect Sunday out for spectators as well as runners.

    The Alton Water Run has three routes:

    The 2k is open to all, including children in pushchairs and teams in fancy dress.

    The 5k run is a chip-timed race for children aged 11+ and adults. The route winds through woodlands and fields, a great alternative to Parkrun and fantastic for C25K runners.

    The 10k run is a chip-timed race, attracting runners from across the region. This route crosses woodland, fields and country lanes. It can be a great training run as part of a marathon or half marathon programme, it can be a target race for those focusing on their 10k time, and it can be an idyllic off-road setting for runners hoping to complete this distance for the first time. It is open to those aged 15+
