Sun 2nd July 2023
How to Get There
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.
Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.
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.
Please arrive 30 to 45mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
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.
