Cambridge Half Marathon 2017


The AKU Society has 10 places for the Cambridge half marathon in March 2017!

The event has become so popular since it began 6 years ago that places sell out soon after they go on sale. So this is your chance to get a ticket for this sold-out event! Rory took the first place and is now waiting for others to join him….

In 2016 we had 8 runners take part in this great event and everyone had a great time whilst raising crucial funds for AKU patients. If you sign up for the 2017 event you will have the chance to run through the beautiful streets of Cambridge, whilst helping out a local charity. The distance shouldn’t be a worry as there is plenty of time to train and Cambridge is very flat. It is the perfect excuse to get and stay fit over the winter.

We ask that our running fundraisers pay a £50 non-refundable deposit to secure their position and to raise a minimum of £300 in sponsorship. We will offer you support with both your fundraising and your training, so the entire experience will be easy and fun.

If you would like to take part please fill in the form below. If you would like more information please contact our team on 01223 322897 or email [email protected] who will be very happy to answer any questions you may have.
