March Athletic Club saw five of their members post personal bests at the Cambridge half marathon on Sunday.

The popular race, returning after two years of disruption due to Covid, saw runners set off from Midsummer Common in the city centre and pass colleges by the river.

And March included 12 finishers, with newcomer Oliver Goodwin (1:55.07)  taking 11  minutes off his previous best to beat the two-hour mark.
