Course information

The Cambridge route takes in some of the most impressive sites and views of this beautiful historic city. On a mix of tarmac, grass and cobbles, this largely flat route will take you running through the bustling city centre, past market square, through the stunning grounds of Kings College, before finally reaching the festival atmosphere of Jesus Green to enjoy a well earned afternoon in the park.

Meeting point

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day.  Additional start times may become available as and when needed.

Please head to Jesus Green where you will see the main stage and start and finish line in the centre of the park.

A number of roads will be closed for Race for Life, look out for details of the course route and road closures in the Cambridge press and signs aorund the city. Please use the Park and Ride sites to access the city. City centre car parks may be impacted by the road closures.

This course is a mixture of paved pathways, cobbled streets and grassy terain. The first and last 800m of the course is on grass and can be challening. We advise that this is wheelchair accessible with assistance due to some minor inclines and the course terrain.

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell. They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run around the course!

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19.  We will update on this nearer the time.
