Kevin Henry 5k League

 

The League was formed at an inaugural meeting on the 15th May 2003. Clubs currently involved are Cambridge & Coleridge AC, Cambridge Triathlon Club, Haverhill RC, Newmarket Joggers, Ely Runners and Saffron Striders RC. Royston Runners and Histon and Impington Runners have now joined the League but we will still only have 6 races.

Events take place one evening per month throughout the summer, with each club hosting one event. All races are held on a Thursday evening starting at 7:30pm, unless otherwise stated.

Fixtures can be found on the Race Calendar.

Scoring
First 5 men and first 5 ladies to count with every other finisher scoring 1 point for their club.

2020 team winners were once again Cambridge & Coleridge. Running a 5k on your own proved to be so much harder than a “live” event. Still, Striders held their own with 98 running at least one race, and a record 24 runners completing all 5. There were some great individual performances such that Saffron Striders men finished 3rd and the ladies 4th, with the club finishing 3rd overall.
