13.1 miles, or 21.1 kilometres, is a long way to run. So long, in fact, that people will take an estimated 15,600 to 22,300 steps to run the distance. That’s a lot of steps.

Despite this imposing physical challenge, six fantastic Findacure fundraisers have decided to run the Cambridge Half Marathon for us! On Sunday 3rd March, Meera, Patrick, Rob, Alex, Julia and Dave will be joined by another 10,000 runners on the beautiful streets of Cambridge.

We are incredibly grateful for their support and wish them the very best for their runs! If you’re able to, we would love it if you could give them a little boost and donate to their fundraising pages. All money raised will enable us to continue transforming the lives of rare disease patients and their families.

And if you’re around Cambridge on the day of the race, keep an eye out for our runners’ bright blue vests and give them a big cheer! You can find more information about the route and timings in the official Runner Info Guide.

If you’re inspired by our runners, why not take on your own fundraising challenge? We would love for you to email info@findacure.org.uk with your ideas so we can provide you with the advice and fundraising materials you need to make it a reality!
