Several members competed in the Jubilee Park Trick or Treat 5k earlier in the day, before running around Wanstead Flats in the dark.

Conall Kirley (1:45) and Lindsey Buckley (1:52) ran the North Wales half marathon, as Ruth Jacobs, Susan Mcdowell, Jenny Winter and Mike Bristow completed the Beachy Head marathon in 4:30.

Lydia Wilson just missed a good-for-age London Marathon qualifying time at the Abingdon Marathon, clocking 3:46 on her debut.

But Ellie Page set a new 10-mile best of 1:28 at the Great South Run down in Portsmouth, where clubmates Ivaylo Enchev (1:20), Sabjan Sama (1:22) and Michelle Panyandee (1:41) were also in action.
