Running 26 miles one week was clearly not enough for one member of St Albans Striders as he followed it up with an epic ultra marathon.

One week on from the streets of London, Andrew McKillop took on the Thames Path 100, a run which started in Richmond before winding its way along the river to Oxford.

And McKillop showed no ill effects from the marathon as he clocked a PB for the distance of 18 hours 35 minutes 45 seconds.

Milton Keynes was a popular destination for other Striders seeking a marathon time.

Steve Kennedy, Laura Lane and Paul Mostyn all set their quickest times while Jamie Ingles went underneath 100 minutes for the first time in the half-marathon distance.

Chris Wrighton was fourth in that race.

Deb Steer made her marathon comeback by running 3:34:10 in Southampton and winning her age category while over in Vancouver Ian Hirth ran clocked 3:36:45.

Also in Canada Errol Maginley and Jenny Maddocks completed the half marathon.
