Bridge The Gap is back!

Bridge The Gap is back!  

Registration is now open with an early bird offer, don’t miss this unique charity walk around seven University of Cambridge Colleges.

Cambridge’s iconic Bridge the Gap charity walk returns on the morning of Sunday 10th September 2023. The specially designed three-mile route through the grounds of seven of the University of Cambridge’s Colleges, raises funds for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and Romsey Mill.

Last year more than 1,500 people took part in the first in person Bridge the Gap since the pandemic, raising more than £30,000 and this year even more walkers are expected.

The event would not be possible without the support and sponsorship of Cambridge businesses and community organisations. It is the 13th year the walk has been sponsored by The Cambridge Building Society and the media partners are Cambridge 105 and the Cambridge Independent.

The two charity partners, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and Romsey Mill, offer essential support and care to people throughout Cambridgeshire.

As well as having the chance to walk around the beautiful gardens and courtyards of seven Cambridge Colleges and see many hidden gems, there’ll be musical entertainment, food and fun at Parker’s Piece after the walk.
