Two teams and one ultra-runner from West Norfolk Athletic Club completed the Hereward Relay – a four stage, 38.4-mile continuous relay from Peterborough Cathedral to Ely Rugby Club passing over bridleways, fields, bridges and tracks.

The nine athletes all had excellent stage finishes with many getting personal best times.

West’s team Hammer finished brilliantly in 29th and with team Sprint finished a respectful 69th place out of the 110 teams entered.

West Norfolk’s Martin Koenigsberger braved the whole four stages to be West Norfolk’s first ultra-competitor and stormed in just over six hours to clinch second place.
