This fantastic course takes in some of the most impressive sites and views of this beautiful historic city. Running through the shopping centre, coursing around market square, journeying through the privileged grounds of Kings College, before finally reaching the festival atmosphere of Jesus Green to enjoy a well earned afternoon in the park.
The meeting point is on Parker's Piece - bring friends and family to cheer you on your way.
