Rod Sinnott first Fenland Running Club member home at Thorney 5-miler held from Bedford Hall


By Pete Woodhouse


The annual Thorney 5-mile race, held from the Bedford Hall, took place on Sunday.

Chip timing means entrants can be guaranteed an accurate run time on closed roads.

Like their 10K race this is a flagship race for Thorney Running Club and is envied by other clubs for its organisation and professionalism.
