Welcome to the Town and Gown 10k

Join us for the 5th Cambridge Town and Gown or even our brand new Leicester Town and Gown. Both are open now!

Join thousands of runners and take on the challenge to turn Oxford, Cambridge and Leicester orange for one day each year. Wearing our trademark, stand-out-from-the-crowd orange T-shirts, come and run the 10k routes around the closed streets, parks and rivers of the historic cities, all in aid of Muscular Dystrophy UK.

All university city routes are unique and scenic, which make them perfect for all runners, including those who want to take to the streets in fancy dress, beginners who have signed up to run their first race, as well as the more experienced runners who want to beat their personal bests. 

The Town and Gown 10k series is a great way of supporting Muscular Dystrophy UK and raising much needed funds to fight against muscle-wasting conditions, which affect over 70,000 people in the UK. So far the Town and Gown 10k series has raised over £1.85 million, which is all down to the dedication of participants who sign up to the events and fundraise for the charity.
