Four male runners from Fenland RC ran one of the region’s premier 5 mile road races at Thorney last Sunday.

On the classic out and back course, 235 competitors benefited from near perfect conditions in the first half but had to battle through a strong headwind on the last 2.5 miles.

The star performance has to go to newcomer Justin Showell who took 19 seconds off his PB to record a time of 37.36.

Colin Ferguson was third in the M60 and has benefited from competing in the Park Run at King’s Lynn over the last month to record a time almost two minutes quicker than his time last year.

Paul Wiegand showed a return to form with a solid run and Richard Hammond put in a decent run with a new PB.

Times: Richard Hammond 35th 31.26; Colin Ferguson 66th 34.00; Paul Wiegand 91st 35.44; Justin Showell 114th 37.36.
