Your runner number which includes a timing chip will be available for collection from the clearly signed registration area on Histon & Impington Recreation Ground from 8.00am to 9.05 am on the race morning.

The start of the quarter marathon is at 9.20am and the half marathon is at 9.30am with Wave 1 and wave 2 at 9.35am in College Road which is 300m from the Recreation Ground and race helpers will help with the direction along the route to the start. Both runs finish at Histon & Impington Recreation Ground.

There will be no parking in the Recreation Ground car park itself but there will be sign-posted car parking on the Histon Vision Park.

There will be provision to leave baggage in a marquee which will be manned but we must advise this is done entirely at your own risk.

We would appreciate that you take note of the information provided at the start of the race which will include some safety instructions;

  • the run route includes the support track along the Guided Busway. Please run on the left-hand side of the Support track at all times (this should give space for other users – especially cyclists). Under no circumstances must any runners run on the actual Busway track and anyone found doing this will be automatically disqualified
  • the run route crosses a number of roads and at all road crossings all runners must exercise due care
  • please exercise care on those parts of the course where the surface is uneven, and runners are requested to use road pavements at all times when

There will be four water stations on the course but please note that energy gels are not being provided and please be prepared for weather conditions plus do not wear headphones.

Refreshments and shelter will be available all morning from 9am to 12.30pm on the Rec and the Recreation Ground has a modern play area for children of all ages. There is also a HI Wellbeing mile charity run for children at 9.45am on the rec during the Half Marathon and children would need to accompanied when doing this.
