2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the first liver transplant in Europe which took place at Addenbrooke’s. The Liver Perfusion Machine is a revolutionary device for storing donated livers for extended periods of time. The machine can also assess donated livers for their suitability for transplant. This will enable more and safer transplants to take place, saving many more lives. ACT is starting a campaign to bring such a machine to Addenbrooke’s where it would be the first in UK and the Grantchester Charity Runs are supporting that campaign.

Please consider donating to our designated charities when registering. Entering an amount in the Donations section works best for everyone!

  • The 10k and 3k both run through attractive farmland adjacent to Grantchester. Importantly, there are no awkward road crossings in fact there are no road crossings at all. The courses are predominantly flat so we expect fast times. And to measure those fast times, 2018 will feature Chip Timing for all 10k participants.
