Two brave ladies, Sharon Bird and Denise Griffin from Fenland Running Club, tackled their first-ever half marathon at the inaugural Friends of Histon and Impington Recreation Ground Flaming June Half Marathon.

In a field of 650, they entered only to find that approximately 10 miles of the 13.1 were off-road!

Contending with temperatures of 23C was bad enough, but in places the grass on the off-road section was waist high!

Nonetheless both ladies completed the distance with Sharon 598th in a time of 2.36.27 and Denise 615th in 2.41.04. Paul Griffin also ran coming 204th in a time of 1.52.09.

Also running on Sunday were Clive Harrod, Katie Ward and Paulina Zub in the Woodhall Spa 10K at Jubilee Park Woodhall Spa.

In a big field of 1,002 finishers, Clive was 170th in 44.57 Katie 213th in 46.40 and Paulina 418th in 52.36.
