Clair Drage has every right to put her feet up over Christmas after successfully completing her personal challenge of 12 marathons in 12 months.

The St Albans Strider reached her target at The Usual Suspects Marathon at Samphire Hoe Country Park near Dover.

Elsewhere the main focus for the club was the latest round of the Sunday Cross Country League at Willian.

Almost 30 took part in wintry conditions along the 4.9 mile course.

Wendy Walsh was the club’s first female finisher ahead of Helen Cartlidge.

For the men, Jonathan Scott was in the leading pack, emerging across the finish line in seventh overall.

Other Striders who took part included Isla and Jim Hopkins who both made their senior cross country debuts.
