They were joined by Tony Reeve in 49:58 and Jim Mason who finished in 52:03. Richard Stevens and Russell Morris also put in fantastic runs.

The ladies side of Samantha Fawcett, Becky Fawcett and Celia Findlay also took home the team prize with Sam finishing as second woman overall in a new PB of 41:08. Celia raced home in 46:41 to finish as first female V50 with Becky close behind her in 47:01, placing second in her age category.

Tamara French turned out for her first race since the Brighton marathon, crossing the line in 48:17 whilst Louise Flower raced to a superb 56:20 with Samantha Hawkridge hot on her heels, powering to a 1hr 01 finish across the hilly route.

Ant Gomm raced home to a course PB in the 5k event where he was joined by Andy Gee, who crossed the finish line in 29:29.

Although the heat got a bit much over at the Bassingbourn Half Marathon, Annette Howard produced a brilliant 2:25 finish time as our lone representative. The course follows a multi terrain route including footpaths, trail and often marshy undergrowth which Annette describes as a “great route to run”.
