Route information
The route will take you into the heart of Cambridge, passing many historic University College buildings. Take a look around as you run through these closed streets – they really are stunning. You will then come out of the city centre, enter the well-groomed Jesus Green and run along the River Cam before hitting the roads again to make your way to the finish.
Water will be available at 4.5k and 8.5k – delivered to you by our amazing volunteers.
The event route will be similar to last year's, with the start on Victoria Avenue and the finish in Midsummer Common.
The route will take you into Jesus Green and into Midsummer Common along the River Cam before finishing in the Event Village.

If you sign up after this date, you’ll have to collect your race number on the day of the event. We’ll keep you informed ahead of the event.
If you give us your mobile number on entry, you’ll get an SMS with your chip-time shortly after you finish the race. All chip-timed results will be available on after the event.
Food & Drink
You’ll find a number of food and drink stalls in the Event Village on the day. All of these donate a percentage of their sales to Muscular Dystrophy UK, so if you support them you’ll be helping support the charity. Keep an eye on the website in the coming months to see who’ll be there on the day. If you wish to support the day as a caterer, contact us via:
On the day, there will be trophies for the following categories in both the 10K and the Junior 3k

The event is organised by Muscular Dystrophy UK, do I have to fundraise?
