King's runners win inter-college cup in local relay

Two teams of runners from King's competed amongst the 380 local teams from colleges, local companies and running groups in last Sunday's Chariots of Fire charity event.

For the third year in a row, King's A won the cup for the fastest College team. The six runners ran 1.5 miles each through the centre of Cambridge, and finished in 55 mins and 37 seconds, more than six minutes ahead of the second College.

King's A team

Craig Lambert (studying Medicine) ran a strong first leg, followed by Neil Paul (Engineering), Alison Greggor (Psychology), Kristy Guneratne (Admissions & Schools Liaison Officer), Maddie Gieddes-Barton (English) and Stephen Kissler (Applied Mathematics) on the final leg. Finishing in twelfth position overall, they did particularly well to be the first team including female runners.

Rob Wallach running

King's Fellows Rob Wallach and Jules Griffin combined forces with graduate students Tim Kasoar, Camice Revier, Liz Dzeng and Jonas Tinius to form King's B, cheered on by the College porters and custodians as the route passed through King's itself. Rob Wallach was cheered home particularly enthusiastically by the other King's runners as he finished the final leg for the team to record a time of just over one hour and sixteen minutes, comfortably ahead of the other College B teams.

Well done to them all!
