2021 Cambridge Half Marathon

My Story

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I’m raising money right now for Cancer Research UK. There’s no time to lose! Like everyone, I've lost people to cancer and I don't mind admitting that it scares the willies out of me in in general. So I will be running the 2021 Cambridge Half Marathon (13 miles / 21 kilometres) and aiming for a Personal Best to try and raise some funds for a very worthy cause. It will certainly be a new way to see Cambridge, and is probably more strenuous activity than I managed in three whole years of student life combined when I was studying there! Please donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. ______________ Banner image credit: Cambridge Half Marathon runners on Sidney Street cc-by-sa/2.0 - © Richard Humphrey
