5k and 1k races see many families participating in fancy dress

By Fenland Citizen Reporter

A sunny Saturday morning saw a cracker of an event in Wisbech Park with Three Counties Running Club holding their third annual Santa Run.

Some 70 people took part in the timed 5k race and over 60 in the 1k race. The event was open to all ages and abilities and saw lots of families participating in fancy dress.

All finishers received a medal, a Krispy Kreme doughnut and a mince pie. There were prizes for the first male and female finisher in the 5k race and for the best fancy dress.
