Scores of athletes and fun runners descended on the Cambridgeshire village of Sutton-In-The-Isle near Ely as a popular event was resurrected at the weekend.

The Sutton 10K is locally known as 'The Beast' because of the terrain covered along the route. It was first staged in 2000 as part of the village's Millennium celebrations, but restored to the Cambridgeshire road running calendar after a year's absence.

In later years the event was re-named the Tony Robinson Memorial Run, in honour of its organiser who passed away.

The 10K and Fun Run (the 2K mini-Beast), part of the Sutton Feast Week, attracted almost five hundred runners to the village.
