The Cambridge Branch of Parkinson’s UK invites you to join us for the annual Tulip Fun Run on Sunday 8 April to mark Parkinson’s Awareness Week 2018.
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.
Every participant who completes the course will receive a certificate and medal to commemorate their achievement!
Participants are encouraged to raise funds to support the Cambridge Branch of Parkinson's UK and it's members.
Bibs will be handed out on the morning of the Fun Run, and there will be a (at your own risk) bag drop where participants can leave items while on route. After the event they'll be refreshments for those who have taken part, as well as food and drink for purchase by spectators.
