Unfortunately, we’ve had to make the tough decision to postpone the Ministry of Track until next year. The 2021 date will be announced in the Autumn. If you purchased a ticket for this year here’s some important information for you.
All participants who have purchased an entry to the Ministry of Track has instead two options. The first is that you may obtain a full refund by simply emailing your ticket ref number, or secondly, you may keep your entry for next year and have the option of switching to an alternative race distance, even if the race is more expensive, without penalty. We understand that as we have not set the date as yet, the eventual date might not be suitable for you, so we are also giving you a refund option for 2 weeks after we announce the 2021 date. We thank you for your patience and can’t wait to eventually get on the Track in 2021. To request a refund please send an email to [email protected]
Team event, calling all running clubs.
Within the 10k race, we have a Team Prize, the first 5 people of their respective teams. Entries are open to everyone and if you’re a member of a club you’ll score points for your Club Team. Running clubs are invited to pitch up next to the track, with their gazebos to shout encouragement to their team members.
Something For Everyone!
The Ministry of Track Event, the first of its kind at Bury St Edmunds, with something for everyone. The chip timed races range from a full 105.5 lap Marathon, to an amazing winner takes all Golden Mile, where last place drops out every lap. If 10k is your race we have a 10k race with team element to represent your club. If you’re a bit speedy there’s a 10k Elite race too. Runners will speed through the “Tunnel of Love” on the home straight, supporters are encouraged to support on the track up to lane 3, literally on the shoulders of the runners cheering them on. There’s great food, a bar and tons more.
