I am tempted to look at the logistics of getting over for a parkrun and then going to the mile. Not sure if I can make it work.

Got something to say?

Okay, here it is. Again. And again. And yet again. And once more. And this time with feeling. And this time in the summer which probably means it's going to piss it down. And now again at Christmas. And this time not even in East Anglia, really (which is probably just as well). And back in Cambridge with bells on. And this time it's a bit Disnae. Yet again, eighth time for luck. Like Tokyo 2020, Jingle Mile 2020 has been postponed to 2021 but we can't afford a rebrand. Instead there is a Virtual Jingle Mile. Make up your own swears. And back for a Not The Jingle Mile 2020 In 2021 thanks to Hells Bells. The Jingle Mile 2020 is happening in 2022, thanks to the magic of television. (It's not the magic of television.)

Saturday 3 December 2022

Cost £5.00

Directions to the track:


It's blocked off about a hundred yards down.

From M11 - Exit at J12 (A603, Sandy & Cambridge), follow the A603 along Barton Road to Grange Road on your left. Up Grange Road to Adams Road on your left. The entrance to the track is at the end of Adams Road.

From A14 Eastbound - Exit at J31. Follow A1307 Huntingdon Road towards Cambridge city centre. Follow signs for A1134 Ring Road and turn right onto Mount Pleasant and follow the one-way system down onto Madingley Road. Turn right onto Madingley Road, first left onto Grange Road, and second right onto Adams Road. The entrance to the track is at the end of Adams Road.

From A428 Eastbound - Exit for Cambridge and American Cemetary. Follow the signs for Cambridge city centre past the American Cemetary, across the M11 bridge, Churchill College on your left until you reach Grange Road where you turn right. Take the second right onto Adams Road. The entrance to the track is at the end of Adams Road.

From A14 Westbound - Exit at J31 onto the M11 Southbound and follow the directions above.

For anyone who is coming by train, there is now a bus service U from the railway station to Robinson College, Grange Road, which leaves a half mile walk along Adams Road to the Wilberforce Road University Track.

You could also walk from the station. It's a couple of miles. Head out of the station and onto Station Road, right onto Hills Road then follow that all the way into the city centre to Petty Cury. Turn left there and go down onto the Market Square. Cross the square diagonally then bear down the side of Great St Mary's. Turn right at the end then immediately left down Senate House Passage. Follow Trinity Lane round to the right and then left onto Garrett Hostel Lane. Over the bridge then straight on over Queens Road and up Burrell's Walk. Bear right at the end and up onto Adams Road. The track is at the end of Adams Road.

Swimmers and paratroopers, you're on your own. Weirdos.
