17 pictures of the 2021 Grantchester Charity Runs
More than 325 runners registered for the 11th Grantchester Charity 10k & 3k last Sunday (September 26), with runners raising money for Maggie’s Centre Cambridge and Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust’s Buy a Robot campaign.
The men’s 10k was won by Ed Moffet, with a time of 35min 27sec, while Saeed Kayhanian and Alexander Maclay finished in second and third place respectively – Saeed with a time of 37:16 and Alexander with a time of 37:23.
Suzanne Tautz, who was the fastest woman with a time of 45:11, was followed by Mette Eilstrup-Sangiovanni (47:29) and Natasha Michael (48:12). Mette gained some consolation by leading ‘Bonds and Babes’ to the team prize.
The 3k was dominated by some very speedy youngsters with the top four being under 11. Congratulations to Torin Jones and Katy Hinshelwood, winners of the male and female divisions. The run was supported again this year by the Cambridge Independent, which is also backing the surgical robot appeal.
Christie Marrian, one of the organisers, said: “It was a joyful event and even the weather cooperated. We were particularly glad to see so many people enjoying themselves. Special thanks to all the marshals and volunteers from Maggie’s and ACT whose collective bonhomie drove everyone on.
“We were not expecting such fast times and our 10k and 3k winners narrowly missed out on new records on our multi-terrain courses. It was also gratifying to see so many familiar names and faces who have supported the Grantchester Charity Runs over the years.”
