First home for FRC was Andrew Plume, who took 13 minutes off his personal best to finish 78th out of 2,041 finishers in 3 hours 14 minutes and 50 seconds.

There were also personal best’s for Martin Jennings (196th, 3.31.05) and Stuart Follen (353rd, 3.43.24).

Dave Hood finished 1,663rd in just over five hours.

But Richard Betts pulled up with injury at about 16 miles and Leanne Rickett, who was on track to her target at twelve and a half miles, had to pull out with heat stress.

Fifteen Fenland runners took part in the field of 1,557 who completed the Bespack Great East Anglia Run in King’s Lynn on Sunday.

In good conditions, all FRC runners completed the course within the hour.
