Cambridge will host 3000 people for a half Marathon on Sunday 11 March 2012. The run starts on Victoria Avenue and finishes on Midsummer Common. The 13.1 mile route circles the city over two loops taking in Cambridge’s top sites including The Backs, The Market Square and along the river Cam. This is Cambridge’s first marathon in 17 years. There was a huge interest and with only 3000 spaces the event was filled up very quickly.
The run which passes us on Chesterton Road is due to be an annual event and this years charity is Cancer Research.
Roads in the area will be closed on Sunday, some from 04.00-15.00.
