Our short 4 mile run takes in some of the most scenic parts of Godmanchester and includes a circuit of Portholme, the largest water meadow in England. We welcome runners and walkers of all ages & standards, there are prizes for the fastest & best fancy dress. We welcome people to walk the course, there are safety marshals and best of all it starts & finishes at a pub.

The Venue

The Godmanchester Fun Run starts and finishes at The Exhibition Pub, 3-5 London Road, Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire. PE29 2HZ. There is parking at the rear of the pub which can get a little busy. There is further free parking in the adjoining streets. The pub has refreshments and toilets but there are no changing facilities or showers.

The Route

The 4 mile (6.2km) circular route leaves the pub and heads along London Street, round the corner onto Old Court Hall, along The Causeway and Post Street before turning left into the car park and onto the recreation ground. The route then follows the pathway on the recreation ground over Godmanchester lock and onto Portholme meadow. We do one lap of Portholme with a water station at halfway and follow the same route back to the pub.
