May bank holiday sunshine brought runners of all ages to Jubilee Park in Huntingdon for the BRJ Mayor of Huntingdon Charity Race.
Now in its third year, the event saw more than 160 runners taking part in the main five-mile race, with dozens of people also joining the Fun Run, a mile and a half course around Jubilee Park.
Alex Metcalfe was the winner over five miles, finishing the race in an impressive 31mins 26secs, closely followed by Team Bex’s Mark Barry. Tyrone Farrer was the first V40 finisher, and BRJ runner Gilles Corby took the prestigious V50 prize. Ahead of the pack of ladies was March AC’s Geraldine Larham to take first female, and local BRJers Jackie Wren and Shelley Duffy took second and third.
The race was started by Councillor Bill Hensley, the mayor of Huntingdon, who thanked competitors and organisers for their support.
Prizes we awarded by Doug Mcilwain, who thanked BRJ Run and Tri Club for organising the race.
