The third ‘Flaming June Half Marathon’ Sunday 12th June 2016
Registrations now open
An improved and faster rural multi terrain half marathon course for 2016 across rolling and pleasant Cambridgeshire countryside ‘
Welcome to the website and we are looking forward to welcoming runners next June to the third Flaming June Half Marathon.
Organised by The Friends of Histon & Impington Recreation we hope that the half marathon will develop over the next few years into a unique annual running event providing something a little different from the usual road based half marathon courses.
In the last two years nearly 1200 runners have enjoyed taking part on two scorching June Sunday mornings and the runner feedback received was extremely encouraging.
The start time for the 2016 event is 9.30am partly to avoid the heat – yes this is correct !
The Blue Smile Mile will take place on Sunday 12 June at 10am- all children and families are invited to take part in this event around a mile course in Histon & Impington Recreation Ground. An entry fee of £4 adult and £2 will directly benefit Blue Smile the Canmbridge based children’s counselling charity.
The Friends also organise the ‘ Bonfire Burn 10k ‘ held annually in November which started only three years ago and is now one of the largest running events in the County attracting a field in 2015 of nearly 900 runners
