The annual half marathon takes place through the developing town of Northstowe where the scenery is constantly changing, with landscaped open spaces, natural areas and innovative architecture. This multi-terrain course will take you past important historical features of neighbouring Longstanton and out into the surrounding countryside with its open skies and wide natural vistas.

Be Prepared 5k is a single-lap course in the natural and landscaped areas of the Water Parks. The new and established lakes offer an interesting mix of wildlife and spectacular views. All the profit from this run will support the 1st Northstowe Scouts Group.
