New to Running?

New to running? This page is a really quick summary of how to get involved with running in Cambridge, whether you want to run for fitness or want to train up for a race!

Development Squad

If you’re new to CUH&H and worried about training with the elites, Dev Squad is a great place to start. We aim to cater to runners of any experience and ability. To get involved sign up to the weekly club email by sending a blank email to soc-cuhh-subscribe [at] lists.cam.ac.uk and come along to Dev Squad sessions. Our Dev Squad officers this year are Iona Harrison (isch2), Lydia Carter (lgc28), Catherine Funnell (cmf64), Jess Armes (ja705), Isaac Flanagan (if285), Samuel Lloyd (sjml5) and Arthur Conmy (asc70) – get in touch with one of them to find out more. Normally during term time we have a weekly Friday tea run (30 minute jog ending at a different college each week with food/drink – every so often actual tea!)

Cambridge is a great place to run, and if you’re not sure where to go here are our most common routes (most of them have convenient shortcuts if you want to do something a bit shorter), or better still join us for a run and we’ll show you around! We also have a lot of socials going on which are usually posted on here.
