EAAA is excited to be the official charity partner of Chariots of Fire in Cambridge this year! Take part in the iconic 1.7-mile relay to help EAAA save more lives through vital CPR training.17 May 21
The race takes place on Sunday 19 September and starts and ends on Queens’ Green, Cambridge. Teams of six will take it turns to follow a picturesque route through some of Cambridge’s historic city centre. Tickets are £25 per person with a recommended £50 sponsorship per person.
EAAA’s teams attend more cardiac arrests than any other type of emergency. In these situations, the most important part of the patient’s survival is not the EAAA team but a by-stander performing CPR. Not enough people are confident and trained to do so. You can help EAAA change this. Through Chariots of Fire EAAA is hoping to raise vital funds towards a £97,500 project to deliver more life-saving CPR and defibrillator training.

Chariots of Fire is the regions longest running charitable relay race and is organised by Hewitsons Charitable Trust, the charity established and supported by Hewitsons LLP.
Teams of six will take it turns to follow a picturesque and unique 1.7-mile route through some of Cambridge’s historic city centre and two world renowned Cambridge University Colleges, over the Cam and along the Backs, before passing on the baton to the next runner at Queens’ Green.
Teams will assemble on Queens' Green for a 9am warm up and 9:30 start. All funds rasied through the event and team sponsorship will help EAAA to deliver life-saving CPR and defibrillator training.
