Nigel Seale is first Fenland Running Club male home at Abbey 10k

By Pete Woodhouse

On a glorious sunny Sunday, nine members of Fenland Running Club took on the challenging mixed terrain Abbey 10k.

Conditions were hot and breezy, adding challenging headwinds to the struggle against the heat, resulting in a race that generally gave few personal bests.

In a field of 395 Nigel Seale was the first FRC male home in 42:54 and Jac Richards the first FRC female in 56:59.

On June 23 the Sublime Midsummer 10K took place on a sunny morning, attracting 600 runners. It is a hard-standing surfaced course through the heart of the beautiful Ferry Meadows, less than three miles from Peterborough city centre. The course is relatively flat in main, with a few ups-and-downs and takes in varied landscapes of meadows, lakes and woodland in one of the largest country parks in the region.
