The fifth ‘Flaming June Half Marathon’ Plus new ‘ Flaming June Quarter Marathon ‘

Welcome to our event website and we look forward to welcoming runners next June to the  Flaming June Half & Quarter Marathon running events on Sunday 3rd June 2018.

Come and enjoy the unique multi-terrain course and option of runs, don’t take our word for it – these are just a couple of comments received;

‘great organisation, really helpful and super supportive volunteer marshals and you delivered beautiful weather! Roll on next year!!’

‘Really interesting course, great organisation and the marshals were fantastic, easily the best of any event I’ve done which includes a multitude of cycle races, runs and triathlons’

New for 2018

  • Over 60 age categories in both half & quarter marathons &
  • Under 18 in quarter marathon

Organised by charity The Friends of Histon & Impington Recreation and the village HI Runners the Flaming June events provide something a little different from the usual road-based courses. The Friends have a growing reputation for organising community sporting events including the Flaming June’s smaller brother the ‘ Bonfire Burn 10k ‘ to be held on Sunday 4th November 2018 plus the Strawberry 50 Community cycling event held on Sunday 9th September.

The start time for the half marathon is 9.30am partly to avoid the heat – yes this is correct ! and the quarter marathon starts first at 9.20am

The HI Wellbeing Mile will take place on Sunday 3rd June at 9.45am – all children and families are invited to take part in this event around a mile course on Histon & Impington Recreation Ground. An entry fee of £4 adult and £2 will directly benefit the work of  Blue Smile ( the Cambridge based children’s counselling charity) at Histon & Impington Junior School
