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

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

2019 team winners were once again Cambridge & Coleridge. Striders held their own with strong performances and our biggest turnout ever at our home race, with  113 runners, the men finished joint 5th with Newmarket Joggers and the women were 4th ahead of Cambridge Tri Club and Newmarket Joggers.  We are up against some of the fastest runners across the region, including GB juniors so still a fantastic achievement by all runners, with some fantastic individual performances! Well done to all Saffron Striders who took part, with many runners setting new PBs and running their very first 5k for us. Only 11 Striders managed to completed all 6 races: Matthew Billis, Nikki, Charlie and Mark Coutts, Mark Frow, Tina Hamilton, Alan Jones, Kate Poulter, Vivienne Prentice, Iain Rogers and Paula Thurston. Congratulations to Mark and Paula awarded the best Strider’s female and male trophies for running all 6 races, overall improvement and performance.
