Road Closures For This Sunday's Cambridge Half Marathon

    The Cambridge Half Marathon returns to the city this weekend with around ten thousand runners taking part in the 13.1 mile run around some of the city's best known landmarks.

    The single-lap race starts at 9.30am this Sunday (3rd March) when runners will set off from Midsummer Common on Victoria Avenue, before heading through the historic city centre as well as passing through Trumpington and Grantchester before returning to Victoria Avenue.

    Traffic management will have been put in place from 4am with some road closures lasting until 4pm. 

    Along with the participants organisers are expecting around 6,000 spectators. All car parks will remain open throughout the day of the event , except for a short period of time (09:15 – 10:30) where access to Grafton West Car Park will be restricted.

    Bus services will continue to run on the day of the event, however the stops on Trumpington Street and Downing Street will be suspended up until 13:00, with an alternative stop in place on Emmanuel Street.

    Here's a full list of road closures for this Sunday 3rd March.
