March Athletic Club runners were out in force at the annual Cambridge half marathon, with 21 members taking part on a beautiful Sunday morning.

The course is a relatively flat and scenic course, taking in the city centre, the iconic King’s College and St John’s College before heading out into the countryside to the village of Grantchester and back through the city centre, to finish at Midsummer Common.

A perfect personal best (PB) course and several of the team achieved some great times.
