Poor weather did not stop over 300 runners from taking part in the annual Fen 10 race held by Fenland Running Club (FRC). 

The event, sponsored by stationery firm Rhodia, saw runners head towards the likes of Wisbech, West Walton and the Walpoles. 

Now in its 17th year, the race regularly attracts participants from over 68 clubs across the country. 

First to finish for FRC was Andy Baldwin, 68th overall in a time of 1:15:38, while Lesley Price was first lady in 1:45:55.
