Tulip Fun Run 2020

Starts Saturday October 10th, 2020


Official Website


The Cambridge Branch of Parkinson’s UK invites you to join us for the annual Tulip Fun Run on Sunday 11 October to fundriase for the Cambridge Branch of Parkinson’s UK. This year we recognise a former branch member, David Johnston, who participated enthusiastically in past Tulip Fun Runs and in whose memory a Trophy will be awarded following the event. 

The Fun Run route is approximately 4 miles / 7K, starting at the David Rayner Building at Scotsdale's. The course follows the path along Cambridge Road towards Granhams road, then goes off road along the DNA Cycle Path towards Addenbrooke's hospital. Then walkers and runners will turn left along the Dame Mary Archer Way (bridge), and follow the route through the new housing development, towards Shelford Road. From there it's the home straight along the path to finish up at the David Rayner Building at Scotsdales.

The first past the post in three categories will recieve a trophy, and every participant who completes the course will receive a medal to commemorate their achievement! 

Participants are encouraged to raise funds to support the Cambridge Branch of Parkinson's UK and it's members. 

Numbers will be handed out on the morning of the Fun Run, and there will be a bag drop where participants can leave items (at own risk). After the event they'll be refreshments for those who have taken part, as well as food and drink for by spectators*.
