The improved route has been designed based on feedback from the 2013 event and now includes a longer town section and an altered last mile.

A map of the route, supported by University Campus Suffolk (UCS), has also been designed, which organisers say is easier to follow.

The run is organised by Ipswich Jaffa running club with the borough council.

The club’s Carl Ashton, who will be race director, said: “We’ve taken on board feedback from last year to simplify the course with a more direct route to the finish at the mansion.

“Adding a section in the town centre gives more opportunity for us to show off the town and we are hoping that this will lead to more spectators coming out to support the runners.”

Faye Gaffer, events and conferencing manager at UCS, said: “We are delighted to support this event and specifically the new route designed to showcase Ipswich at its best.

“UCS is committed to bringing people together at community events and supporting a healthy lifestyle.”

There is still time to sign up for the event on September 21 but entries are filling up fast.

  • Going through the cemetery? Not a good idea. This needs to be changed.

  • I've done this the last few years, and will be doing it again this year, but it was much better when it started and ended at Northgate sports centre. The course was much flatter and it was cool doing the last 400m round the athletics track. This route is very similar to last years where there are so many hills it's more like an obstacle course.
