The Fen Gallop

I spent a delightful yet busy morning in the lovely village of Willingham today, race timing the 2022 Fen Gallop. The Gallop comprises two race distances of 10KM or 4 miles, as well as children’s races and a toddler sprint.

Having run for many years now, this event is always well attended and this year was no different, with almost 300 entrants across the two main race distances.

Despite the rain overnight, the weather turned out fine and actually became quite warm as the morning moved on, providing almost ideal conditions for the runners. I even managed to find a few minutes to take a quick look round once I had all of the timing equipment set up and running smoothly.

Very well done to everybody who took part today and congratulations to those who achieved a new personal best!
