One of the region’s most popular 10K and Fun Run events is back for 2016 and online entry for both races is already open. ‘The Beast’ is held annually in Sutton, as part of its Feast events, and both races involve a multi terrain course – the Tony Robinson 10K taking you off the edge of The Isle of Ely, out into the Fens and back while treading on a variety of pathways, including road, grass and fen droves. This year’s event will be the first that is ‘chip timed’ and orgainsers Martin Pickering and Stuart Green are looking forward to it already, “Event preparation is well underway and it promises to be the best yet. As we speak, nature is preparing the course! We are proud to say that we are supported by many local businesses including Cheffins who are the principal sponsor”.
The event also features ‘The Mini Beast’ – a fun run designed with old and young alike in mind and is sponsored by ‘Treetops Soft Play’. Stuart said “this is a lovely family friendly event that last year broke all records in the number of participants. The local community all buy into it with runners ranging from 6 months to 75 years old. Some don fancy dress and others run for the team trophy. It’s a wonderful event”
The MC for the event is no other than ITV News’s Donovan Blake and this year the musical backdrop will be provided by local band Blue Thunder. The will be a hamper raffle by Team Jacum and we will also be supported by the WI Café and the Sutton Feast BBQ.
This year’s event takes place on Sunday June 19th 2016 and early entry is advised
