Entry is now open for the fourth showing of the Bassingbourn Brainstrust Half Marathon. This event sold out in 2016 resulting in the entry limit being increased to 475 runners. This is a fast, flat course which is perfect for those stepping up to the half marathon distance or those looking to smash their half marathon Pbs. The course takes runners through the picturesque South Cambridgeshire villages of Bassingbourn, Litlington, Abington Piggots, Guilden Morden and Steeple Morden and consists of 12miles on road and 1.1 miles offroad along a grass track. Race Headquarters is perfect for runners with ample on-site parking, secure baggage area, changing and showers, on-site toilets and portable toilets. There are refreshments and homemade cakes provided again by the Scouts, a barbecue, free sports massage and an on-site shop provided by Trisports selling all your running essentials including gels, bars and clothing. All finishers will receive a medal, a bottle of water and a banana. We also have cash prizes for beating the course record which stand at 74mins 9 s (male) and 76mins 13s (female). There are also team prizes and category prizes. The official charity for the event is a again Brainstrust, a brain cancer charity.
