THE TEEVAN family were out in force in Spa Striders colours at the Venice Marathon on Sunday.

Pete Teevan crossed the line in the picturesque Italian city in a personal-best time of 3hrs 14mins 42secs, ranking him 289th overall, while his wife Emma Teevan completed the 10k race alongside sons Matty and Dan Teevan in 1:11:37.

At the Cannock Chase Half Marathon, Jo Fleming led a Striders contingent home as the third-fastest woman in 29th place following her 1:46:01 finish.

She was followed shortly after by the trio of Susie Stannard, Kate Gadsby and Claire Murphy, who crossed the line together in 2:05:30.

Closer to home, Tim Down was the first club member across the line at the Rugby Half Marathon, finishing in 28th with a 1:27:06 time.
