Cogwheel Trust launches new running events


The Cogwheel Trust has launched a new running event for all ages, taking place on the last day of the current decade in the stunning park location of Jesus Green beside the River Cam. All proceeds will go to the Cogwheel Trust, supporting the charity’s mission to provide affordable mental health counselling for individual and families in Cambridgeshire. Our huge thanks to Cambridge Bid for their support in helping start this new event.

Suitable for all age groups and with all runs off-road, this is a perfect event to get all the family involved. Runners can choose from a 5k race, a 2k fun run and a 200m toddle mini-run.
