Sign Up for the 2023 Shelford Fun Run

We are delighted to announce that entry for Shelford Fun Run is NOW OPEN!

As usual we will not be taking on the day entries so please register in advance. The run is chip timed and has a staggered start to allow those participating in the 5k race to get away before the 5k fun runners.

New this year, our inclusive sporting friends at Power2Inspire will also be bringing a  Super Sensory 1km to the rec!  It will be a free optional separate circuit which you can complete instead of, or after, the 5k. To help us estimate numbers please tick the box in the 5k sign up if you wish to complete the SS1k, or if you wish take part in the SS1k only, please pop over and register directly with  Power2Inspire.

This year, proceeds from the Fun Run will be spit equally between:

Supporting the completion of the #ShelfordWheelscape phase of the Great Shelford Recreation Ground masterplan.

Supporting their Unique Feet Community Group for children with rare conditions and their families in Cambridgshire and the Eastern region.


If you don’t fancy running but would like to get involved we’d love to hear from anyone able to volunteer on the day to help set up / marshal or clear down, please email

And of course we’d love to welcome spectators to cheer on our runners – there will be ice cream!


We would not be able to deliver this wonderful event without our amazing sponsors so show them some love!

We can’t wait to see you at the start line!
