Fenland runners out in force for annual Thorney five mile
MORE than 200 runners from across the region lined up in Thorney at the weekend to take part in the village club’s annual five-mile race.
The event, a test of runners’ short-course speed, produced some excellent times but was made that little bit tougher by the scorching heat, which saw the mercury rise towards 30 degrees centigrade.
Philippa Taylor of Nene Valley Harriers (30:37) was the first lady home on the day, while Matt Grundy of Woodford Green AC (26:01) was the first man home.
There were 11 participants from the Fenland Runners Club competing in the
event and first home was Jack Trow (28:31) who claimed the first under 20 prize.
