Early Bird rates are in effect until tomorrow (Sunday, July 17). As a special offer, readers of the Cambridge Independent – the Grantchester Charity Runs media partner – can use the code GCRIndy22 to extend that deadline to July 23. Register at Grantchester10k.org.

Richard Pilsworth, head of Bidwells Cambridge - the 2022 platinum sponsor - said: “We’re so proud to be sponsoring the Grantchester Charity 10k this year. This is a well-established fixture in the Cambridge calendar and we are pleased it is back.

“We’re all looking forward to helping to raise awareness and funds for the two charities, the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust and Maggie’s. Both charities are very close to our hearts.”

The courses are multi-terrain, predominantly flat on a combination of bridleways and farm roads, including a particularly attractive stretch adjacent to Bourn Brook. No public roads are involved - or closed - and there is plenty of parking nearby for everyone.

Christie Marrian and Justin Fairhall, on behalf of the organisers, added: “A good feel for the event can be obtained by perusing the event website. Numbers are limited but the family special for accompanied under 12s in the 3k is back.

“Also returning are the traditional post-run refreshments, thanks to our supporters Grantchester’s Orchard Tea Garden and the Lunchtime Company. Trumpington-based Coach House Healthcare will be there to attend to your pre and post-run niggles and Lucy Carlton from the Frank Lee Centre at Addenbrooke’s will be leading the warm-up.”
