The ARUK Explorer hike is coming to Cambridge! Walk 21 miles of Cambridge’s vibrant city and idyllic Fen countryside on this flat and picturesque route, with rest stops roughly every five miles.
Starting at Jesus Green and heading out along the river footpath, you’ll pass numerous iconic Cambridge locations such as King’s College as you walk through the city via The Backs.
A rest stop just outside the city will keep you refreshed and give you an energy boost before you take on Cambridge’s few ‘hills’: the small and scenic inclines at Gog Magog.
You’ll then follow the Little Wilbraham River on your way to the gorgeous countryside of Stow cum Quy, and pick up the river Cam again as it leads you through Stourbridge Common (where you’ll likely see cows grazing!) as you head back towards the city centre to the finish at Jesus Green.
You’re then invited to join us and your fellow walkers for a hot meal and post-event celebration while you wear your medal with pride.
- An exclusive ARUK Explorer t-shirt.
- An ARUK Explorer medal.
- A finish line celebration with a hot meal and fizz at the end.
- Three check points along the route to help make your challenge as easy as possible.
- The very best support in the lead-up to the event and on the day from our expert fundraising team.
Registration and the finish: Jesus Green, Cambridge, CB4 3BD.
Parking: Paid parking is available in the city centre. Park Street car park is a five-minute walk from Jesus Green, and is open all day. We recommend checking your parking options ahead of the day.
The route will be fully signposted with three support locations along the route. These support points will include snacks, toilets, medical support and event staff. Lunch will be issued at one of the support locations. A hot meal and celebratory glass of Prosecco will be provider for each finisher.
Please note minimum age 17 on date of event.
