Martin Jennings has led the Fenland Running Club charge in two events in recent days.

Jennings was the quickest of their 13 members who took part in the latest round of the Peterborough Grand Prix 5k series, hosted by Eye Community Runners, last Wednesday.

Jennings finished eighth in a field of 310 runners with a time of 17:23, while Stuart Follen and Rod Sinnott both broke the 20-minute barrier with times of 19:20 and 19:44 respectively.

And Jennings was again in speedy form with a ninth-placed finish at the Ramsey Abbey 10k last Sunday in a time of 35:57, which earned him age-group honours in the MV45 bracket.
