Race Description

The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity would like to welcome walkers and runners alike to participate in a 5km festive fun run through the historic City of Ely. The race, open to all ages, will begin at 11am from the Ely Market Square. There will be a raffle draw and prizes awarded to lucky participants who wish to enter. Fancy dress is optional, and encouraged! You can walk, jog or run the route, it’s up to you!

The Arthur Rank House is dedicated to providing specialist palliative care and support to adult patients and their family, friends and carers. All care is provided free of charge, and is offered to people living throughout much of Cambridgeshire. The aim is to enable patients and those close to them to live as fully as possible, and make the most of the time that’s left.

The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity works in partnership with the NHS to support the hospice. This year the Charity is committed to raising £1.3 million, and is solely responsible for funding the Day Hospice and Hospice at Home service.

Can we count you in?

The entry fee is £10 for adults and £7 for children (under 16). This fee is non-refundable and covers all expenses invoiced in administering your place. It also pays for your Santa hat, medal and a bottle of water. Please visit for more information.
