Fenland Running Club’s Ladies repeated their success at the Heckington 10 mile by also taking the Ladies team prize at the Ely Runners Grunty Fen Half Marathon on Sunday.

Despite this, Maire Irlam, Sarah Gauvin and Nicky Jennings finished first team in the huge field of 524. Irlam was also 2nd LV45 and took 3rd place in the Cambs County Championship element of the race.
