The Alton Water 2018 Race will take place on Sunday, 6th May 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.

Always a fantastic event, in spectacular scenery, the Alton Water Run has a festival feel with fabulous food stalls, live music, children’s entertainment and side stalls, a café, picnic area and playground. The run is a registered charity, raising much needed funds for the small rural schools around the reservoir.

This will be our second year of both proudly sponsoring and running the 5K race. For more information about the race, please visit
