Town and Gown 10k Series

Junior Competitions

Every year, we are overwhelmed by the support and generosity of local schools and clubs in Oxford and now Cambridge taking part in our growing Junior Fun Run, and this year we would love to see your school or club team at the start line.

We have THREE exciting Junior 3k Fun Run competitions taking in place in 2016 - see if your school or club has what it takes to win! If you have any queries about the below competitions, please contact us on 0207 803 4828. 


1. Enter the BIGGEST team to win a prize!

We are asking all schools and sports clubs in Cambridge to enter their biggest team to be in with the chance of winning a prize.

Teams are a minimum of 4 junior runners in the 3k. Teachers/Group leaders - simply email your chosen school team name to or contact us on 0207 803 4828 to set up your team and get recruiting.

Don’t forget, your school team can include adults in the 10k, so teachers and older pupils, don’t feel like you can’t get involved!


2. Be the FASTEST team to win the Town and Gown Junior 3k Trophy!

Compete with other schools across the county in the Town and Gown Junior 3k Trophy.

The team with the best average running time of its four fastest runners in the 3k will be crowned winner of the Town and Gown Junior 3k Trophy in the special presentation ceremony at the end of the race.


3. Raise the HIGHEST amount to win the Fun Run Fundraiser Award!

Why not tie in your team run with a fundraising challenge? We are so grateful to the schools and club teams who fundraise for Muscular Dystrophy UK; every penny raised makes a huge difference to our work.

The school or club who raises the most for Muscular Dystrophy UK will be awarded with the highest honour of them all – the Fun Run Fundraiser Award, specially presented after the event.
