Runners will cross two roads at the very start of the race. See the map. Sorry, the course is not suitable for wheelchairs. Note the course has been measured with a Garmin GPS.


Please do not exchange your number with anyone else without authorisation from the race director. Numbers must be attached to the front of your running top. Please note that mutilation or non-display of your number could lead to a disqualification.


There will be qualified first aid personnel in attendance at the race. A runner must retire from the race immediately if required to do so by a medical official. Please observe advice from on-course marshals. We recommend not using an MP3 player whilst running the race as it impairs your ability to hear marshals’ instructions.


There are no drinks stations on the course but water will be available at the end of the race, should you need a drink we suggest your bring your own suitable drink.


We welcome spectators but would advise them to stay on the paths so as not to hinder runners.


All 5k finishers will receive a race souvenir. This may variey depending on date of entry.


Please do not  stop once you have crossed the finish line. Remain in the order you finished and move through the finish funnel. Do not obscure your number or remove your vest until out of the funnel. It is important that when you have finished your race you do not run back along the course and run in with another runner, this can cause double entry of numbers and incorrect results. Have a drink in the recovery area.


Race prizes will be presented in the Pavilion as soon as practical after the race..


Results will be available shortly after the race and will be put on the race web site as soon as possible afterwards on the website. If you have any questions or problems please contact info@cambourne5k.co.uk
