It was a quieter week for St Albans Striders, but there were a few runners who amassed the miles at various events around the world.
Jack Brooks travelled to the Caribbean to participate in the Aruba marathon and despite the heat and wind, he completed the race, his 454th marathon to date, in four hours 52 minutes.
Closer to home but still battling the heat, Stephen Elkan and Richard Olney fought their way up hills and through shoulder height crops at the Stour Valley Trail Marathon, finishing in 5:08, while Clair Drage ran her first double marathon, the Viking Coastal marathon in 4:32 and the Dambusters Challenge in 5:10.
Graham Smith was fifth at the Wimbledon Common 10K.
Husband and wife team, Matt and Heather Hann, were first male and female at St Albans Parkrun where Gladstone Thompson completed his 100th parkrun and Wendy Walsh was first FV45.
