With the cross-country season now mostly behind them, athletes at St Albans Striders are turning their attention to more traditional road events - with fine runs and superb achievements among them.

Carrie Frazer fell in the latter category, running three track marathons in two days with a combined running time of well over 14 hours.

She has been raising money and awareness for CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).

Ellie Morris meanwhile completed the 20-mile Grizzly Bear 2022 event in Devon while Matthew Cooper set a club record over the same distance, although on a slightly better surface, by clocking one hour 53 minutes 43 seconds at the Essex 20.

He finished 11th.

Jake Butterfield managed one at the Berkhamsted Half too, clocking 1:19:59, while Steve Scorer not only set a PB of 1:29:32 at the Wimbledon Half, he also finished 18th overall.
