Fen Drayton 10K, 5K and Fun Run

The Fen Drayton Lakes 10K was first held in 2011. The winning times were: Men – 37:47 (Peter Sarkies) and Women – 43:49 (Alice Turnbull).

There is a 5K finish line and timer for any runners who feel that they are not quite ready yet to run the whole 10K course. We have courses to prepare you for the 5K (and the 10K) provided by Helen Whittaker (from Life Coaching). Please see Twitter or FaceBook for details.

The Fun Run has been held in Fen Drayton for many years. There was a gap of over 20 years until the headmaster of Fen Drayton School, Ian Connors, decided to revive it in 2011. The winners in 2011 were: Boys – Edward Jones, aged 12 (10:18) and Girls – Ellen Chapman, aged 11 (11:23).

All runs start from Fen Drayton School, Cootes Lane, Fen Drayton, Cambridgeshire CB24 4SL. The 5K & 10K start at 11:00am and the Fun Run at 1:00pm.
