This year's running event takes place on Saturday 28 March. We're entering a Cathedrals Group team in the Mash March Madness 10k run and teams of staff and students from our Member institutions will be taking part to raise funds to support Article 26. This is a project that makes access to higher education a reality for talented students who have sought sanctuary in the UK.


Leading the Cathedrals Group runners will be the Group's Chair, Professor Peter Lutzeier, the Vice-Chancellor of Newman University. This year's CG race organiser is Sarah Lilly, Marketing and Alumni Relations officer at Newman University. Sarah can be contacted by email at s.lilly@newman.ac.uk


The first CG Run took place in 2013 when 80 staff and students from seven universities took part in the Basingstoke Half Marathon and raised over £3,000 to support the Article 26 Project which is organised through the Helena Kennedy Foundation.
