Following the huge sucess of the Cakeathon runs in Kent, the event is expanding to the Middle of England, Northampton!

The course is a mix of very high quality bike paths and grassy trails along the River Nene and around several flood reservoirs, so plenty of wildlife and views to be seen. It's pretty flat, only about 40' of climb per lap.

The event will have a six hour time limit for you to run as many, or as few laps as you wish. With a timed event, as long as you complete one lap, you are an official finisher!

There will be cake, and we encourage participants to bring their own cake creations. There will be a prizes for the best cakes of the day!

These will be

  • Best cake
  • Best cake featuring marzipan
  • Best marzipan creation
  • Best cookie/brownie
  • Best vegan cake/creation
