RUNNERS from Royston firm Episys were victorious in last weekend's Chariots of Fire race in Cambridge.

A team from the company, based in Newark Road, Royston, won the ladies' race, raising money for cancer ­charities in the process. They also entered teams in the men's and mixed categories.

Team member Julie Herron said: "Chariots of Fire is a great event because you get both serious runners and people who are treating it as a fun run. Cambridge University always enters a team who are keen to do well, so to beat them is a fantastic achievement."

Chariots of Fire is a relay race ­covering a 1.7 mile course past the colleges and along the Backs.

Julie said: "Everyone in our team performed brilliantly, and we had lots of help from our coach Mike Vogel.

"Sponsorship money is still coming in, but it looks like we've raised a sizable total for charity.
