Ely New Years Eve 10Km Road Race 2018

My Son-in-Law Andy entered his 3rd 10K race today in Ely. Another Son-in-law Jon was the Race Referee and Daughter Zoe was a Marshall. So I decided to go along and watch, and take photos of course.

The annual Ely New Years Eve 10K Road Race is held in Little Downham. 616 men and women took part.

You can see the results here 

The race started at 11:00. Right from the start Number 162 Chris Darling from Cambridge and Coleridge AC took the lead and after 31mins 45sec he won.

First Girl was Daisy Glover from Framingham Flyers in 36 mins 53sec in position 15

Andy (number 684)  who had a target of sub 50mins achieved  49mins 54sec and came in at position 252. WELL DONE ANDY, I am proud of you.

Jon did an excellent job of Refereeing apart from the fact he kept shouting in my ear at the finish for the runners to keep moving :)
