Join us on 8 October 2023 for a race that goes beyond the distance for those supported by hospice care
St Nic's is thrilled to bring this exciting and brand new event to Bury St Edmunds. Sponsored by Jaynic, we aim to bring together runners of all abilities to challenge themselves while raising sponsorship for their local hospice.
Every stride you take will help a local patient and their loved one when they need it most.
It costs around £8m each year to run our Hospice services and statutory funding only covers around 20% of those costs. We’re totally reliant on the good will and generosity of our community - people just like you - to make sure we’re here for the people who need us.
Whether that’s playing our lottery, making a donation, leaving a gift in their Will or raising sponsorship for our events just like this! It is only because of you that patients and their loved ones in our local community are able to receive the support and care they need.
Race day information
Picturesque start and finish
Starting from Angel Hill, Bury St Edmunds, you will run through the iconic Abbey Gate through the beautiful Abbey Gardens, and up to Moreton Hall. The event will partly be on closed roads but will then cross over at Mount Road onto footpaths.
At the 5k point, there will be a dedicated water stop. The course is undulating so please note there are hills. At Angel Hill, there will be an event village with music and stalls, with a fantastic atmosphere as you start the run and cross the finish line.
Support the work of the Hospice by gathering sponsorship
We encourage all participants to raise sponsorship to support the work of St Nicholas Hospice Care, and aim for a minimum target of £100.
The Fundraising Team at St Nicholas Hospice Care is your point of contact. We are able to support you every step of the way to give you ideas to help you reach your fundraising target.

“We are all really excited to be supporting this new event for the Hospice, and we hope as many people as possible will get involved and sign up to take part in the 10K event."
Nicola Barber, Office and Marketing Manager at Jaynic, said: “The Hospice is there for people in West Suffolk and Thetford at the most difficult times. They are there for those facing death and those left behind to grieve their loved ones. As a business, it is important that we support our local community, and by lending our support, we hope to help the Hospice raise as much as they can with this new event.”
