The Bourn to Run 2024 date is set: SUNDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER 2024! More info to follow in the new year!

Cambridgeshire's premier trail-running event

Now in its 15th Year, Bourn to Run offers a balance of both family friendly and competitive professional trail running routes.

Organised by the community and for the community; Bourn To Run provides vital funds for Bourn Primary Academy.

We are generously supported by local business, and the event is the biggest in the school’s fundraising calendar, bringing new computers, equipment, and games to the children of Bourn Primary Academy.

The varied and challenging 10km course race can test even the most experienced runners. Whilst the 3km fun run around the village of Bourn is a much gentler event, attracting fitness enthusiasts and fun runners.

With a range of fun activities for all the family in the finishers’ area, as well as great coffee, cake and our BBQ to tempt you. 

Whether you’re cheering on others or taking part, the carnival atmosphere is enough to keep everyone amused!

What you can expect at Bourn To Run 2023
