Entertainment

The 2020 Ipswich Festival of Running @ Fit East will have a spectacular array of food and drinks vendors, musicians and DJs and amazing light show and decorations to keep that post-exercise buzz going all day and night! 

The Food

Every year, the food stalls at Fit East get better and better, with artisan burgers, paella dishes, vegan baguettes and stonebaked pizzas on offer, as well as a lot more to keep you well fed after exercising. The food vendors will be at the event all day and night so any time you want something to eat, they'll be serving!

The Drinks

There'll be several barista-style coffee stalls serving from early until late, with amazing soft drinks available too. There'll also be a fully-stocked bar with wines, spirits and craft lagers and ales available throughout the day for when you're done with exercise and just fancy relaxing in an amazing atmosphere.

The colour

Just before some of the area's best local musicians and DJs take to the main stage, our 5k Colour Run will kick off. Entrants will receive a free white t-shirt to get covered in bio-degradable powder paint as they run the course before returning to the festival base for food, drinks and music which runs through the night. Registration in this event for active party-goers is thoroughly recommended.

The music

Throughout the day and after the runs have completed, there'll be some of the area's best musicians playing acoustic atmosphere music, upbeat covers and dance music long into the night. For those looking for a great night out, this will be one not to miss!

The atmosphere

The atmosphere will be one of positivity and inclusivity throughout the day. Adding to this will be amazing site decorations, light shows and quirky festival features for an unforgettable festival atmosphere.
