Riverside Runners enjoyed something new for the bank holiday - the inaugural running of the Little Gransden 10k.

Organised by the Little Gransden Air & Car Show and Riverside Runners committee member Ann Ellmers, it was held one day before the air show itself with 71 athletes turning out in total for the trail run.

It was won by Edward Moffett in 35 minutes 53 seconds with Riverside's own Michael Taylor finishing in 36:05.

The leading female was Cambridge & Coleridge's Clare Thurgood in 40:03 with Leva Klavina of Hunts AC second in that competition in 41:55.

A spokesman said: "It was a very enjoyable event which I’m sure will be even more popular next year."

All monies raised at the event were pledged to Children in Need.
