The ‘Flaming June Half Marathon’ Sunday 7th June 2015
The second ‘Flaming June Half Marathon’ Sunday 7th June 2015
‘a rural multi terrain half marathon across rolling and pleasant Cambridgeshire countryside ‘
Welcome to the website and we are looking forward to welcoming runners next June to the second 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 first year over 650 runners took part on a glorious June Sunday morning and the runner feedback received was extremely encouraging.
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 2014 of nearly 900 runners

We are grateful for the support of the event’s headline sponsor the Holiday Inn at Impington and the Spirit Health Club.
Their generous support has helped the Friends provide 20 places each to the following three charities;
- Blue Smile a Cambridge children’s charity which provides counselling and support in schools to help children fulfil their true potential and have happier lives
- Motor Neurone Disease Association helping support people with motor neurone disease and their carers
- Brainbow at Addenbrooks Hospital working to provide a pioneering rehabilitation service in the East of England for children with brain tumours
