About this run route

Start / Finish

Guided busway, start marker attached to bus stop ramp on the car park side (St Ives to Cambridge bus stop side) of the busway

Mixed terrain, including kissing gates.  Variable path widths, variable surfaces - may be muddy.  On footpaths shared with the public and dog walkers, some close to river and on bridlepaths.   There may be grazing cows on the route. Some paths are very narrow, so not suitable for buggies or wheelchair users. Flat route, lots to see, great for beginners, obvious shortcuts if needed!

Free parking (and cycle racks) available at main Fen Drayton Lakes RSPB reserve car park, from here walk back towards the busway for the start point, which is on the right hand side attached to the (St Ives to Cambridge side) bus stop fence.

Route does flood during the winter/early spring, please check the RSPB website to see if the site is flooded.

The layout and usage of the marked 3-2-1 running routes is the responsibility of the local authority or further education establishment that purchases the route marking signs and usual health and safety and duty of care considerations should be followed in laying out open, even-surfaced, easy-to-follow, safe, accurate, well lit routes at all times - with the landowner’s permission. RunTogether will not provide materials with which to attach the markers.
