Join us

Run through the streets beautiful scenery and historic buildings. The flat and fast course makes it ideal for beginners and elites.

How to enter

There are two ways to get signed up for the Cambridge Half Marathon in October 2021:

Macmillan Charity Place Entry

Our charity places are a great way to make a difference to people affected by cancer with every step. We ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £300 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid) and there’s a £25 registration fee.

To enter, simply click the ‘Get a place’ button and complete our online entry form.

The registration fee is payable to Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited which is wholly owned subsidiary of Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan Cancer Support Trading Limited donates 100% of its profits to Macmillan Cancer Support each year.

Own place entry

Already secured your own place in the event? You can still run for Macmillan on race day, click the ‘I have my own place’ button to join the team and order your free running kit. There's no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!

What do I get as part of Team Macmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join, as part of Team Macmillan we'll make sure you have:

  • Our fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Regular e-newsletters keeping you in the loop in the lead up to race day.

And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!

Most importantly we will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards supporting people living with cancer in the UK today.

Please make sure you read our Terms and Conditions before signing up. You must be 17 years of age or over on the day of the event in order to take part.

If you have any questions, email us at or call on 0300 1000 200.
