!!New for 2017: Chip Timing for All!!
We are again teaming with the Addrenbrooke's Charitable Trust (ACT) to support improvements for the new Haematology Day Unit at Addenbrooke’s. The unit is funded by the NHS and due to open in May- June 2017 to replace an ageing unit that is insufficient for the ever-growing number of patients being treated at Addenbrooke’s. ACT's goal is to deliver a host of tangible patient benefits within the oncology and haematology services. Support from the Grantchester Charity 10k and participants will make a real difference to achieving this goal. Planned improvements include:
* Furnishings for a quiet space and improvements to the outdoor area, both of which provide an oasis in what can be a very stressful environment.
* Psychological and social support in the period immediately after receiving a cancer diagnosis when many patients need someone to turn to.
* High quality treatment chairs and wheelchairs.
Please register now to take advantage as spaces are limited for this increasingly popular event.
We are delighted to announce that our good friends at Flair Catering are sponsoring the 2017 Grantchester Charity 10k T-Shirts with all procveeds going to ACT. Commemorative T-shirts may be purchased for £5.00 through the registration process. Please be sure to include your size when registering.
We also welcome back CrossFit RNA as the official 2017 Grantchester Charity 10k Warm-up team.
Parking is available in the Village Car Park on the Trumpington side of Grantchester, a short walk from the Runs Start

2015 saw the introduction of new courses for both 10k and 3k runs. Both run through attractive farmland adjacent to Grantchester. Importantly, there are no awkward road crossings in fact there are no road crossings at all. The courses are predominantly flat so we are again expecting fast times!
And to measure those fast times, we are excited to announce that 2017 will feature Chip timing for all participants.
Every runner who completes the course will receive a commemorative medal and there will be trophies for the winners of both runs.
