Fitzwilliam College students, staff and Fellows are once again running in the Chariots of Fire race, which this year takes place on 17 September. There are two teams: the Fitz Fliers and the Fitz Triers.


The teams are running in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK, a charity that funds pioneering research to create a world free from the fear, harm and heartbreak of dementia.
