The event which is in its eighth year of the run is part of a series with races at Cambridge, Oxford and Leicester.

Some types of MD eventually affect the heart or the muscles used for breathing at which point the condition becomes life threatening.
There is no cure but treatment can help manage many of the symptoms.
The 10k scenic route takes you through the heart of Cambridge passing many landmarks, historic University College buildings and along the River Cam.
