Here is our guide to the parks, routes and events in Ipswich.

There are numerous beautiful parks in Ipswich; Alexandra, Christchurch and Holywells are regularly used by joggers, as well as running along the main roads and incorporating the waterfront and marina into your route. Villages such as Henley and Witnesham, as well as running through the Fynn Valley or Orwell Country Park enable you to discover areas of Ipswich you might not have seen before.

If you are looking for a regular organised run, then Ipswich Parkrun organise free 5km runs, every Saturday at 9am, all year round either in Christchurch Park or Chantry Park. Runners of every pace are welcome, you will be allocated a printed barcode and timed. The event is organised solely by volunteers so you can also become part of the community by being a steward.

The I Can Run Club is a women-only club for all abilities who meet on Tuesday evenings each week and also run A Beginner’s Session in Ipswich. For runners outside Ipswich there are meetings in Felixstowe and Debenham.

Ipswich Jaffa Club meet every Monday at Northgate Sports Club for training and run mixed beginners sessions as well as access to trainers and sports massage. The first session is free and then there is an annual membership fee.
