The ECCA 10 mile Championship race was held on Saturday afternoon on the E2/10 course near Six Mile Bottom along the A11. Five members of the Ely & District Cycling Club - B&T Motor Repairs were competing in the event, and four took advantage of the fast conditions to set new distance personal bests.

Manlow's time was a distance personal best, as were Will Shepherd's time of 21:35 and Alison Fox's time of 23:36.
