Fun Run 2023 - Biggest yet

A great day for and all and with a record 700 entrants and almost £7,000 raised our biggest Fun Run yet. Thanks to all the runners, supporters and spectators, volunteers and sponsors.


Records broken 

Rotary’s Fun Run 2023 was a great success. But even we were surprised to raise a record of almost £7,000 for local causes including a £1,500 donation to our primary beneficiary SULSAR (Suffolk Lowland Search and Rescue). And that’s not to mention all the sponsorship raised by the runners for their own causes and clubs.
