Runners turned out in their hundreds for one of the Fenland athletics calendar's most anticipated events.

Over 300 took part at the annual Fen Ten road race over the weekend, which is organised by Fenland Running Club.

Conditions were brutal and certainly amongst the toughest of the year so far, but that didn't stop everyone putting in maximum effort and having a good time.

Braving the heavy showers and early winter winds, competitors followed a circular route around West Walton and the Walpole villages.

The event, which was sponsored by Rhodia, was being held for the first time since 2019 and attracted runners from as far away as Maindenhead.

First across the line for Fenland Running Club was Andy Baldwin, who was 68th overall with a time of 1:15:38.
