Chairman of Three Counties, Richard Betts, said: “There is such a lot of paperwork and planning behind the scenes to be able to get this event off the ground but without the help of the sponsors, committee, marshals, stewards, club members and the runners, it would not have happened, so thank you all.

“I would also like to thank Fenland Running Club and March Athletics Club for their support and help on the day. I am really proud to be the chairman of a great club.”
