The Woodbridge Shufflers are pleased to announce that the highly popular Woodbridge Round-the-Town Charity races will this year take place on Sunday 19th May at 12 noon. The races, which follow an undulating course through the streets of Woodbridge, feature a 10k circuit for runners aged 15+ and a 1.5km race for juniors aged 7-15.
The ‘Round the Town’ is a true highlight of the Woodbridge sporting and social calendar, attracting visitors and residents alike to line the streets in support of the runners. This year will follow the same tried-and-tested format as in previous years, with no changes to the course and offering approximately 700 places for seniors and 150 for juniors.
The races are incredibly popular and entries will open on Saturday 9th March at 12 noon so all those wishing to enter are advised to keep a close eye on the Woodbridge Shufflers website where details of the online entry will be published. Details will also be shared with local online publications and on the Woodbridge Shufflers 10k Facebook page.
The races are proud to raise money for local charities and in 2018 a record-breaking amount of £12,000 was raised and distributed to five charities. This year six charities will benefit from the race and they are:
- East Anglian Air Ambulance
- Fresh Start New Beginnings
- Lapwing Education
- Suffolk Accident Rescue Service
