The race course does contain a number of road crossings, Traffic lights will provide assistance at these crossing points and all runners are requested to exercise care at these road crossing points.

Race finish

The race finish is at Histon & Impington Recreation Ground. After crossing the finish line please stay in finish order in the funnel, and collect your drink and race memento.


The race will have chip timing however even the best systems in the world can go wrong so our volunteers will be running the same system we have used in previous years.

The run is staffed by volunteers and, while all effort will be made to record finish times, the organising group take no responsibility for failure to record times accurately.
