The 13.1 mile route is mostly flat with fully closed roads. It showcases the best of what Cambridge City has to offer!

You can expect to take in many of Cambridge’s prestigious highlights.

The Course

The course guides you from Midsummer Common through town and the historic grounds of Kings College.

The care my sister received from Arthur Rank Hospice was truly remarkable. I take pride raising funds for those who need palliative care.

All runners with a charity place will have their packs sent directly to the address they registered with.

We have introduced our own fundraising platform now. This means you will feel a sense of community and you can see the overall total raised by all #TeamArthur Runners. Please ask our challenges team for more information challenges@arhc.org.uk. Other fundraising platforms are available. 

Yes! We love coming along to cheer on our runners. You can find us near The Mitre pub on Bridge Street. This is usually between mile 12 and 13, where we can give that extra boost over the finish line.

On the day some 12,000 runners will be participating, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity is hoping to secure 50 Charity Places. We also welcome any runners who have secured their own place in the ballot and choose to fundraise for the Charity.

We expect our #TeamArthur community to reach around 60-70 runners in 2025.
