Are you looking for your golden ticket to the Cambridge Half Marathon?

The 2018 race might be sold out, but local charity Eddie’s have a few charity places available.


Following on from the success of Eddie’s Cambridge Half Marathon team 2017 we have extra charity spaces available. This prestigious race now in its seventh year has already sold out for 2018. What better way to secure your space than by running for Eddie’s. With just a £20 registration fee and a small fundraising target of £150 Eddie’s is the perfect choice.

Each year The Cambridge Half Marathon sells out in record time and it’s no surprise with such a stunning backdrop to take on a half marathon challenge. The route itself remains the same as the past 2 years, starting and finishing at Midsummer Common. The route takes in some of the many beautiful Cambridge sights, including world renowned universities and the historic attractions of this vibrant city.

Last year Eddie’s had a fantastic team of runners supporting the charity at this impressive race. Helen Thurley, Head of Community Services said, “This year we are looking to grow our team and help fund our Family Support Service. Each year we need to raise £29,000 to continue this life-line service, supporting many local children with a learning disability and their family.” Every penny raised through the race will go directly to this Cambridgeshire service.

Eddie’s is available to help all its runners with fundraising hints, tips and support as well as providing running vests and support through social media.

If you would like to find out more about joining Team Eddie’s 2018 then get in touch today. Contact Helen Thurley on 01223 883130 or email helen.thurley@eddies.org.uk
