Chariots of Fire

Cambridge | 21st September 2014

A fast 2.5K course wound around the breathtakingly beautiful scenery of some of Cambridge’s finest historic architecture and past the startled tourist crowds visiting them. The Sunday morning sun finally broke through, shining down on the famous World Heritage site with it's honey coloured limestone facades of Kings, Trinity and Clare College while almost 2,400 runners passed on their plastic batons 5 times in the team relay event to the cheers of excited colleagues, spouses and their little children.

The MCW team, inspired by the never tiring Lien, proudly managed to improve the total team time from previous outings to an impressive 1h 10mins, placing it 28th in the mixed category out of a few hundred teams, effortlessly beating several others from the construction industry. Congratulations!
