Midsummer Common race sees Andrew first male home for Fenland and Bethan first club female

By Fenland Citizen Reporter

Sunday saw 15 members of Fenland Running Club take on the Cambridge Half Marathon 2019.

This popular 13.1-mile race saw nearly 8,500 runners start on Victoria Avenue by Midsummer Common, from here they headed along King’s Parade and out of the city via Trumpington Road.

After a beautiful loop around Trumpington and Grantchester they headed back into the city to finish on Victoria Avenue. The weather was overcast with a slight drizzle, perfect running conditions for a few PB’s.
