Chariots of Fire 2019 - two Fitzwilliam College teams

Staff and Fellows from Fitzwilliam College are set to run together in September’s Chariots of Fire event in Cambridge.

Two teams of six will be running in the relays on Sunday 22 September: the Fitz Sisters and the Fitz Mixers. Each person will run 1.7 miles (2.73km). This is the first year that an all-female Fitzwilliam College team has taken part, in celebration of women first entering the College as undergraduates in October 1979.

The Fitz Sisters and Fitz Mixers are running in support of Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) with the aim of raising £650 to help fund a new specialist children's ambulance service. The service will be dedicated to providing the highest level of care for Cambridgeshire’s sickest children, benefiting on average 1,700 patients a year.

Please support our teams and enter your donations via our Just Giving page!
