Halstead’s Steve May took another big step in getting back to full fitness following his broken leg as he tackled Saturday’s Great Notley Park Run. May who has been out for nearly 6 months posted a fantastic time of 22:21 over the testing 5k course.

Treena Harrington opted for the notorious Mucky Races on Saturday in Brightlingsea. A 5k obstacle race, which as the name suggests involves lots of mud. Treena finished 28th in a time 40:37.

Sunday’s hot conditions made the annual Fairland Valley Marathon course even tougher for Andy Wilmot and Rosie Atkins (pictured). The off road trial marathon starting and finishing near Stevenage, Hertfordshire is a popular fixture on the marathon calendar. Despite a nasty fall late on Andy Wilmot was able to catch Rosis Atkins who was suffering in the heat, the pair finished together in a time of 5:19.
