Boundary Run 2016

Welcome to the 2016 Boundary Run:

After a succesful race last year we will be returning to the Cambridge University Sports Centre. Half-marathon runners will be finishing at Coldham's Common and full marathon runners back at the Sports Centre. As always, it's going to be a great event, and we hope to see you there!


The Boundary Run is a marathon (~26.2 miles) and half-marathon (~13.1 miles) race that takes participants around the boundaries of Cambridge. The course traverses roads, footpaths and trails, and incorporates some beautiful and not-often-seen areas of the city. It's a laid back event with a friendly and pressure-free atmosphere.

Both the full- and half-marathon courses are about 30% off-road, and there are several reasonably sized hills on the course - significant enough to surprise those who are used to the flat terrain of Cambridge. This is a challenging but fun and rewarding course.

Here, participants and spectators will be able to park in the nearby West Cambridge and Wilberforce Road facilities (more details to come), and will have access to the new Sports Centre's toilet, changing room and café facilities - at which hot food and drink will be available to purchase. Once half-marathon runners have completed their race at Coldham's Common, they will be able to take a shuttle coach back to the Sports Centre.

Avoid missing out and sign up today!

We're looking forward to seeing you very soon
