SPA Strider Tim Beresford represented Team GB at the European Championships held in Spain.

Taking part in the cross duathlon, Beresford finished 11th in his age category (35-39AG).

Chris Liddle ran a fantastic Dublin marathon in two hours and 42 minutes whilst recording a 16-minute PB to break the Strider record by over a minute.

In a rainy Lausanne, Switzerland, Liz Draper completed her first race in club colours and second marathon in a week in a time of 4:40.

Katherine Lambeth completed the Venice Marathon in 3:57.

Closer to home, Emma Bird completed the brutal Dartmoor Vale marathon, unofficially in a time of 4.17 and came home as sixth lady.

Zoe Beale (2:01:41) and Gary Perkins (2:04:36) completed the Rugby Half Marathon.

Elsewhere, Clare Westrope completed the Exmoor Trail half marathon in 3:39.
