Sublime Racing - who organised the Peterborough Marathon earlier this year - are now organising a festival of running to take place at Ferry Meadows this summer.

The event will be held on August 3, with a range of races for amateur athletes of all abilities taking place - including the gruelling 24 hour and 12 hour events.

It’s good news for people not wanting to take on the full race, as for the longer events they can take part as a pair, or even a team.
