Walk, jog or run London to Cambridge, one of the UK’s most iconic university towns.

Starting in the buzzing East London, this route will take you to the flat Cambridgeshire countryside via fields, footpaths and quaint villages. This challenge has something for everyone. With 2/3’s of the route being off-road, this isn’t a challenge for the feint-hearted, although finishing in the stunning scenery of Cambridge will make every step worthwhile.

N.B. You'll need to have raised 50% of your sponsorship target 6 weeks before the event to confirm your place. But don't worry, we've got loads of fundraising tips and support to help you achieve this.

This will be your challenge done your way, and there will be support for you every step of  your journey:

  • Free massage, hot meals, drinks & snacks en-route
  • Finishers medal, T shirt, glass of bubbly!
  • Relay option available – team of 4, with each taking on ~25km

For more information on this challenge please visit the official website.

Join our team and we will beat cancer sooner.
