Flaming June Half Marathon


Histon hosted its fourth Flaming June Half Marathon on June, 4. Seven Ely Runners competed in this multi-terrain event.

The Mike Groves 10K



This fast and flat scenic race was run over a course at the old RAF Base as Coltishall. John Glover & Karl Bedingfield decided to give it a try…

Waterbeach Running Festival


Saturday the 13th of May 2017 saw the Waterbeach Running Festival in aid of the Waterbeach Toddler Playgroup Charity. The races featured on the day were a 2K Fun Run, a 100m toddle, a 5K race and a 10K race.

Lancaster Three Bridges 10K



Martin Courtney jumped at an opportunity to escape the company of his large northern family (too much sitting around drinking tea and endless chats about shopping… ) to run the Lancaster Three Bridges 10k on the first May bank holiday weekend.




Justin Smith wandered over to his neck of the woods on the 9th of April for the 2017 Haverhill Half Marathon; one of the races on offer as part of the Haverhill Running Festival.

Wymondham 20



It was a windy, cool and at times, sunny morning for the Wymondham 20 mile race. The usual two-lap course was filled with competitors mostly preparing for their upcoming spring marathon.

Eastern Athletics Association has held open cross country championships most years since 1937. Only C&C, Nene Valley, and Peterborough AC have ever brought the trophy to Cambridgeshire, could Ely add to that list in 2016?

Fenland 10



Windless conditions and an extra hour in bed helped to attract a large field, including 15 Ely Runners, for the Fenland 10 in Wisbech, which incorporated the County and EMAC 10 mile Championships.

South Cheshire 20



Peter Harris made the long journey to Crewe for the South Cheshire 20, a small race with a maximum of 200 entries, in preparation for an October marathon.




Emma Greaves took part in her first IRONMAN on July 17. With race preparation complete, it was time for the main event – swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112, then run the 26.2 miles of a marathon. All within the 17 hours cutoff!
