Race Info

Sunday 2nd July, 10 AM

By kind permission of the Trustees of the Magog Trust, we’re once again running on the beautiful Magog Down.
Scroll down to see what we’ve got lined up!

The course

First of all, if you don’t know where Magog Down is, here is how you get there. There are off-road paths from Stapleford and Cambridge, so why not reduce your carbon footprint and get your warm-up done by cycling, walking or, for the real aficionados, running.

All races start half-way up the hill at the North Down, in a staggered fashion. The 1k route is a single loop of the North Down. The 4k route also takes on the South Down. For 8k, well, just go around one more time.

1k Route

4k/8k Route

Want to Register?


Anyone who crosses the finish line (after having completed the race, that is…) can get a medal. But there are also some special prizes:

Top 3 Male and Female

These are for the speedy ones. But the bigger you are, the longer we expect you to run to earn one. So here’s the fine print:
1k – top 3 male and female up to the end of Key Stage 1.
4k – top 3 male and female up to the end of Key Stage 2, and
– top 3 male and female from Key Stage 3.
8k – top 3 male and female (any age).

Best Fancy Dress

Nothing says fun run more than loads of runners in fancy dress. And in case you were hesitating, there’s a prize to be won! So bring your most elaborate, awesome or ridiculous-looking outfit, and stand out during the race so our judges can spot you.

Post race refreshments

We’re trying to minimise single-use plastics. So please bring your own water bottle. We’ll have a refill station.

Need to recover some of the calories lost during the race? The big kids in the school will have a cake stand near the finish line. OK, so we can’t promise that all the cakes will look as good as the ones below, but they’ll be yummy!
