March runners tame The Sutton Beast virtually
March Athletic Club runners have been virtually taming The Sutton Beast over the last few weeks.
The Beast is an annual 10k mixed terrain race, famed for its uphill section at the end, and is normally held every June in conjunction with a family day and fun run in the Cambridgeshire village of Sutton.
This year the race, as with all others since mid March, could not be held in its normal format due to the COVID-19 social distancing regulations. Instead, the organisers made the race a virtual one and allowed entrants to run a 10k route at any time between May 1 and June 7 over a route local to them.
