Travel Details and Refreshments
From the Cambridge rail station, the venue is about 1 mile North-West (15 minutes walk).
There is free parking on the site, accessible from Parkside. However, due to the half marathon event you should allow a little extra time to get there. The road closures mean that people driving from the south or west of Cambridge should approach via Trumpington (M11, junction 11), not Barton Road (M11, junction 12). From Trumpington Road, turn into Lensfield Road, then Gonville Place, then Parkside.
Those approaching from the north should aim for A14 junction 33 (with A10), then go south down Milton Road, turn left at the roundabout down Elizabeth Way, then East Road, then Parkside.
Full details of the road closures at available from the "Traffic Management" link on http://www.onestepbeyond.org.uk/cambridge-half-marathon.php. Avoid any roads (or halves of roads) marked in purple on the final map.
An alternative is the Anne Terrace car park.
The venue is near to the central bus and coach station area. (It is less than 5 minutes' walk away along Parkside.)
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided as part of the entry fee. Consumption of food will be discouraged in the playing area but an alternative on site will be available for those bringing their own lunch.
