Saffron Striders turned out in large numbers for the popular Cambridge half marathon on Sunday.

Iain Henley returned from a short lay-off to finish in a superb time of one hour 17 minutes.

And Steven McNicholas recorded a personal best of 1:24.31, while the popular David Raimundo, from Great Chesterford, crossed the line in 1:27.43.

Ewen Keller and Mark Thackstone also produced strong displays, finishing inside the 1:40 mark, as club chairman Alistair Cooke ran for local charity Support for Sight ahead of the London Marathon next month.

Catherine Glenister, Zib Gotto, Lucy Heanley, Julia Dolman and Trish Cooke were also in action for Striders at the event.

This weekend sees the Wimpole Night Run take place on Saturday, with the Cambridge Boundary Run, Harpenden Half eco run and Santon Downham 10k taking place on Sunday, along with the Haverhill 10k.
