A BUSY weekend of racing this week with a mix of distances far and short.

Pete Medlicott ran the Round Sheffield race which was an apt name for 20 mile distance event and completed the course.

Penny Lane Striders 10k, which is part of the Merseyside Grand Prix series, saw 10 club members take part.

Kelly Hamilton was third Lady overall in a PB time of 39:42 and first strider lady finishing for the club followed by Kylie Maguire in 45:32, Wendy Davis 47:08 and Sue Heaps in 51:38.

Earlier in the week five Striders took part in a much smaller race, the 1 mile track event at Manchester City stadium in memory of David Coleman.

An event certain to push for those sub minute times the team did great with some impressive mile efforts.

Pete Fairclough was first in 5:04 followed by Kelly Hamilton 5:27, Racheal Fairclough and Scott Robinson in 5:36 and Ian Wright 6:04
