Roads all over Ipswich began to close at 6.30am this morning to prepare for the Simplyhealth Great East Run.

Runners embarked on a 13.1 mile course which started on Russell Road, went through the town centre, on to Holywells Park, along the Waterfront, then out of the centre passing Fox’s Marina, Suffolk Food Hall and under the Orwell Bridge. The runners then returned to the town centre and headed towards Ipswich Town FC’s Portman Road stadium before running across the finish line in the stadium’s practice pitch complex.

Some roads across the town began re-opening at approximately 11.15am while others won’t be open until 1pm, 1.35pm and 2pm.

Take a look at our table above to find out what time each road is expected to reopen, you can look for a particular road using the search bar.
