You can go straight to online signup here. For details read on.

This year’s Fun Run is being held at 11.00 am on Bank Holiday Monday, 1st May 2023.   The event is open to everyone and involves running (or walking) as many laps as possible in one hour starting at 11.00 am around a measured 1-mile circuit centred on the Felixstowe Spa Pavilion.  All runners will receive an attractive commemorative certificate at the end of their run.  It is an opportunity for runners to seek sponsorships to raise money for their club or worthy cause of their choice.  Entry fees are £7 for adults and £5 for 16s and under. These fees go towards supporting local deserving causes as determined by the Rotary Club of Felixstowe.  This year the club has chosen Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue (SULSAR) to be the primary beneficiary, granting a donation of £1,500.

 We encourage running groups, clubs and individuals to sign up early for what promises to be an enjoyable and exciting morning. We encourage those who are willing to run in Fancy Dress; cash prizes of £60, £45, £30 and £15 will be awarded for the four most eye-catching entrants, chosen by the Mayor.  This year, the Coronation of King Charles III takes place the following Saturday so that would be a good theme to consider.

If you wish to enter a team, please email your request to funrun@felixstowerotaryclub.org or phone 07785 575799 who will let you have a team registration sheet and a sponsorship card for each entrant.

For individual entrants, you can obtain registration/sponsorship cards from Diamond Mills at 117 Hamilton Road, Felixstowe or you can call 07785 575799 who may be able to deliver them to you.

Entrants can also register and pay online here where you can also download a printable copy of a sponsorship card to be used to record sponsorship pledges.

All registered entrants need to collect their vest running numbers on the day (between 9.30 and 11.00 am) from the registration desks on the stage of the Spa Theatre, accessed through the stage doors at the rear of the theatre.

Each year we run five high profile fundraising events to support our work in the local community and beyond. Last Rotary Year (2022/23) we raised almost £60,000. That will take some beating!

We may be best known for our fundraising events in the local community. But it's not all work and no play and we also pride ourselves on our fun and fellowship. No wonder we have a steady stream of new members and some well deserved awards.

Although our activities are severely curtailed and we are longing to get back to some sort of normal, the life of the club continues online. Here we see the handover to our new President Dougie Pipe and (below) the induction of new member Jed Payce.
