Sudbury Fun Run to raise funds for Kernos

The Sudbury Fun Run, an annual charity 5-mile run and Sponsored Walk, is one of the major long-standing sporting events in our town – it has now been taking place in various forms since the early 1980s.

Each year the organisers choose a local and a national charity to be beneficiaries of the Fun Run – and this year the Kernos Centre is fortunate enough to have been selected as the deserving local charity.

The Fun Run is accompanied by a Sponsored Walk, organised by the Sudbury Joggers, which follows the same course and starts just after the Run – this is not a race as such, more a brisk stroll for those less atheletically inclined!

This year’s events take place on Good Friday 3rd April, with the Fun Run starting from 9:15am. Full details of both events can be found here.

We understand that – as of the beginning of March – the Fun Run itself is oversubscribed, although there is a reserves list. There are still places available on the Sponsored Walk however so, if you are interested in participating, and at the same time contributing to a worthy local cause, please follow the above link to apply.

If you are unable to take part in either the Fun Run or the Sponsored Walk – but would still like to help Kernos by providing vital funding – you can do so either by:

1) sending a cheque, made out to ‘The Kernos Centre’, to Kernos Centre, 32-34 Friars Street, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2AG


2) clicking on the Donate Now button at the top of this screen, and following the instructions

If you are a taxpayer, your contribution could also be eligible for Gift Aid – which means that every £10 contributed is worth £12.50 to Kernos. For a Gift Aid Declaration form, please contact the Centre – either at the above address, by phone on 01787 882883, or by e-mail at
