East End Road Runners had a busy weekend in London and further afield.

Nick Gorman, Toyin Omodara, Audrey Bury, Janet Campbell, Paul Jackson and George Sceats were all in action in the first Shoreditch 10k event.

Ulrike Gerstenberg, Phill Minns and Jamie Zucker worked as pacers, while the club also provided eight volunteers for the event, who had a very early start to open a lot of water bottles.

Three East End Road Runners took on the Royal Parks half marathon challenge, with Danielle Fletcher and Kat Gibson setting new personal bests.

Meanwhile, in the north of England, Charissa Taylor and Callum Millward ran the Yorkshire 10 mile-race in one hour 21 minutes, while Naomi Elliott clocked an impressive 3:38 at the Yorkshire marathon.

East End Road Runners welcome athletes of all abilities and ages and more details are available at their website
