Newham’s Viewtube Runners warmed up for the new season with a trip to the Oxford half marathon on Sunday.

Vadim Mindru led their group home in one hour 39 minutes 12 seconds, with Mike Bristow (1:42.37) and Susan McDowell (1:59.23) also beating the two-hour mark.

Ahsan H Zaidi (2:01.25), Harry Papanastasiou (2:06.07), Frank Da Silva (2:11.12), Esme Pontes (2:13.22) and Paul Lewis (2:13.22) were also in action.

Closer to home, a group of five ran the Olympic Park 10k, led by Ivaylo Enchev (44.59) and Sabjan Sama (45.12).

Ellie Page and Rosie Booz both clocked 58.18, while Jenny Winter finished in 62.42 after running a 10k the day before in 58.45.
