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.
