Run for the Roof

Grab your trainers, hit the trail and be a part of Ickworth's future

Get involved with one of our sponsored runs

Taking part on our new trail, you'll see stunning views of the parkland on either our 10km or 5km runs. 

Join us on 14 March for a 10km Sponsored run, perfect for keen runners who love to support a great cause. 

10km a bit far? Join us on 15 March for our 5km Sponsored Family fun run, where you can run, walk, cycle, scoot or skip your way round. It’s a perfect way to get the whole family involved and you can fundraise together. 


We challenge you to raise just £35 towards our Ickworth uncovered fundraising target.

But why stop there, can you raise £50 or perhaps £100?

Don't worry, you're not alone, once you register, we’ll get in touch with a fundraising pack to kick-start your fundraising challenge.

Ickworth uncovered

We're mending leaks, adding lightning protection and re-tiling the roof of the Rotunda.
It is the biggest conservation works that Ickworth has ever seen and it’s all thanks to supporters like you that we can carry this work out.

This multi-million pound conservation project see us uncovering Ickworth like never before and re-roofing our building.

The iconic Rotunda, the original vision of the Earl Bishop in 1795, has stood proud in the Suffolk countryside for many years.

However, like any house, it needs support and protection to make sure it will stand for generations to come.

By signing up to take part in ‘Run for the Roof’ you are helping with the last leg in the race to finish our project, which will see our property re-roofed and secured for future generations.

What are you waiting for?
