A guide to the race

Start and finish

The event will start and finish on the Jubilee Recreation Ground in the village of Bourn.


Jubilee Recreation Ground, Alms Hill, Bourn, Cambridge, CB23 2SH

The registration tent and car park will open at 8:30am.


The registration tent will be located at the entrance to Bourn Jubilee Recreation Ground, across the road from Manor Farm where car parking will be available.


Race packs will be available for collection from the Pavilion on Jubilee Recreation Ground on Saturday 14th September, between 9am – 12noon.


Race day packs will also be available for collection on race day but please allow plenty of time. If you are registering on the day of the event, please arrive early! For on site registrations we cannot guarantee that your run will be chip timed.

Car parking - Manor Farm, 14 Alms Hill, Bourn, Cambridge, CB23 2SH

Access to the car park will be available from 8:30am until 9:45am when the car park will close to allow for the road closure from 10am onwards. Parking will be clearly marked, with marshals and car parking attendants to guide you. Please do not park on the roads in Bourn as they may form part of the course. Please try and enter the village of Bourn from the direction of the A428 and turn on to the Broadway (B1046), to minimise traffic in the centre of the village.

Cars will not be allowed to park at the Recreation Ground for the duration of the race. The organisers are not liable for any damage to cars left in the car park so please ensure no valuables are left inside.

For the safety of all our competitors, no car will be allowed to leave the car park until 12:00 noon.

The car park is adjacent to the 3km route and is only accessible via a single lane track. On leaving the car park there will be marshals to direct you.

My race number

We’d like to thank Advanced Performance who have provided the race numbers. Your number should be secured to your chest using the safety pins provided. Please remember to complete the emergency contact information along with any health issues on the back of your race number before attaching it.

Chip timing

All 10km and 3km times will be recorded by chip timing for anyone who has pre-registered. Failure to secure your chip in accordance with the instructions, or loss of your chip, will mean your time is not recorded. All times will be uploaded to the website as soon as possible after the event. All recorded times are final and indisputable. This is a charitable event staffed by volunteers and, whilst every effort will be made to record finish times, the committee take no responsibility for failure to record times accurately.

The chip timer will be contained within your race day pack and should be attached to your shoe (see video below).


Toilets are available at the entrance to the Recreation Ground.

Bag drop

A bag drop facility will be available beside the registration tent. Please note this will be unmanned and the event organisers can not be held responsible for loss or damage to any items left in this area.


All items are left at owners risk.


Refreshments as well as a range of activities for runners and their supporters to enjoy before, during and after the race will be available at the Recreation Ground:

  • Tea, coffee and delicious homemade cakes from The Rural Coffee Project

  • BBQ chefs grilling bacon, burgers and sausages from Knibbs Meat Safe

  • Face painting, and of course the full Recreation Ground playground to enjoy

  • Free post-race massage provided by Fit Again Sports Therapy. Competitors have commented that the massage helps alleviate stiffness, so don’t miss out on yours!
