Harpenden Arrows were strongly represented at the Wheathampstead 10k and Liverpool Marathon events at the weekend.
A contingent of 28 Arrows runners tackled the route between Wheathampstead and Brocket Hall in glorious sunshine, led home by Justin Busby in 38 minutes 33 seconds for eighth place.
Busby, who has been training for the Wainwright coast-to-coast run, said: “I wasn’t really sure if it’d go okay as I haven’t done much shorter-distance stuff recently.”
The second Arrow home was Ammon Piepgrass in 40:16 followed by James Izzard in 40:35.
Meanwhile, a team of Arrows made the trip to Liverpool for marathon, half and 5k events.
