It was all about distance for St Albans Striders as they tackled some ultra-marathons.
Andrew McKillop, Christian Kurek and Richard Vaughan took on the North Downs Way 50-mile race.
McKillop came back from the challenging but scenic course the first of the three in a time of eight hours 29 minutes while Kurek clocked 9:37:38.
Vaughan completing his 50 miles in 11:04:44.
But for Clair Drage, 50 miles simply wasn't enough.
She took on the Viking 100 and showing some incredible endurance, she came home in 26 hours 40 minutes.
