Bourn to run
BACK IN 2022

Prepare for 2021!

Due to the current circumstances, we have decided to postpone Bourn to Run on Sunday 27th Sept. It was a difficult decision but the safety of all our runners and volunteers is of the utmost importance. However, we are very much hoping that Bourn to Run will be back in summer 2021, so please keep an eye out for a new date and we very much hope to see everyone back then! In the meantime, keep safe and keep running!

Cambridgeshire's premier trail-running event

Now in its 12th 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!

The Bourn to Run corse is a multi-terrain route that includes some moderate hills, stretches of roads and country lanes, as well as footpaths, wildlife reserves, meadows and even fields of sheep! Please note it can get muddy or rocky depending on weather conditions. Be prepared for uneven ground. 

A water station will be positioned approximately halfway around the 10km course. There will be no water station on the 3km course. 


We are very fortunate to have the ongoing support of local businesses, without which we would not be able to stage such a great event!
