The LGACS 10k is staged at Little Gransden airfield, just one day ahead of the Little Gransden Air and Car Show, the inaugural LGACS 10K Run proved to be a big success - with almost 100 runners entering the event.
The event is a mixed terrain route across the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside. First across the line and overall winner was Edward Moffett in a time of 35 minutes and 53 seconds, while the first lady across the line was Clare Thurgood from the Cambridge & Coleridge AC in a very creditable time of 40 minutes and 3 seconds. Both now go down in history as the very first winners of the event, while holding the course record for at least a year!
An opportunity for sightseeing too
Competitors from outside the local area can take this opportunity to have a first-class run in great scenery in the morning and take time out to visit the beautiful, historic City of Cambridge in the afternoon.
A memorable event

Each year, the race proves to be an exciting event for the whole community and a pleasure for all concerned, both runners and helpers. Many local community groups and businesses support the event as marshals, as well as taking part. We hope you’ll make this one of the highlights in your calendar and come back year after year.
Entries on the day £20 donation (cash only)
This 10k appeals to runners of all levels from new runners to the more experienced. The distance is long enough to be challenging, but short enough to be accessible to anyone with the determination to achieve a 10k distance with a 2 hour cut off to complete.
Lovely rural courseThe route passes through fields and wooded areas and of course begins and ends on an airfield runway. The finish must be one of the most inspiring in the country!
