Jack Brooks, Striders’ resident marathon celebrity, was responsible for one as he completed his 474th marathon in just under five hours.

Slightly further behind in terms of numbers but no less impressive was Clair Drage who ran her 25th race over the 26-mile distance in the SVN Festive Frolic near Dover.

And she too also completed this in just under five hours in similarly cold conditions.

The latest round of the Sunday Cross Country League took place in Stevenage with around 30 Striders taking part.
