A year later, the second annual races attracted a further 300 participants and in 2017 over 1,700 people took part.
The selected Twilight 10k Road Races 2018 charity partner will receive:

Commenting on the charity partnership, Ipswich Building Society CEO, Richard Norrington said “We are pleased to invite charities to apply to be the official race charity partner and benefit from this growing event, which has become an annual highlight among the Suffolk running community. The selected charity will be able to fundraise through their allocation of free places and also raise awareness of their work in the community.”
