About Cambridge Boundary Run
The Cambridge Boundary Run is organised by Cambridge University Hare & Hounds, The University Cross-Country Running Club. The race stems from when three men and a dog ran around the boundary of the borough of Cambridge non-stop. Inspired by this, twenty-five years later, James Hasler and Derek Shorrocks decided to organise a similar event when about fifteen runners ran around the boundary in February 1949. Although originally an irregular event, the Cambridge Boundary Marathon is now an annual event.
Cambridge is a flat city, making the Cambridge Boundary Marathon quite a flat race. As the name suggests it loops around the city. The race starts and finishes next to the Cambridge Holiday Inn Express.
