Organiser's Description

Run For Cake

LOCATION: Ferry Meadows Country Park, Ham Lane, Peterborough, PE2 5UU

Ferry Meadows is one of the largest country parks in the region. Situated less than three miles from Peterborough City Centre, at the heart of Nene Park, its varied landscapes make it the favourite destination for thousands of visitors throughout the year.

Run For Cake is a 6 hour event (if you a 9am start) or a 4 hour event (if you 11am start), run as far as you can during the six hours and a little bit more if you're lucky, as long as you are leaving the Base Camp by 5:59:59 you get to run another lap, we have a 5.3k lap throughout the forest consisting of gravel footpaths and some grass areas - a multi-terrain course.

You can run as much or little as you want to, you can rest between laps if you like and head out for some more.

You may be completing your first official 5k,10k, Half Marathon, Full Marathon or even ultra-Marathon, or it may be your 100th or 1000th.

This race is also ideal for those who want to try and achieve a Marathon distance and for those who also want the option to push a little further, possibly an ultra but without the complications of trail ultras, with next to no navigation, no kit required, an aid station every lap and straightforward logistics.

Please note Parking is chargeable at the park.

On entering, you will receive an email with the link to the race briefing pack giving you all the instructions you need for race day

Well organised, well marked route through a lovely location, with a well stocked aid-station (and friendly smile) every 5k (or so). Excellent medal and delicious cake and coffee included! No need to run in fancy dress if not fancied (although I did).

Friendly, well organised event in a lovely setting. I completed the 4 lap half marathon route through the forest. Great pit stop snacks and drinks; cool medal and a huge slice of cake to end! Really enjoyable event.
