A relatively quiet weekend for St Albans Striders didn’t mean there weren’t some fine runs.
The club’s globe-trotting marathon superstar, Jack Brooks, headed to Asia and the Hong Kong Marathon.
And on a slightly unusual course, which used the tunnels to HK Island, Brooks finished in a fabulous four hours 52 minutes 44 seconds.
Still overseas but slightly closer Ian Hirth ran the Seville Marathon in 3:24:11.
Back in the UK Jenni Johnston was 92nd out of nearly 400 women in the Tunbridge Wells Half Marathon in a time of 1:51:43.
