Viewtube Runners enjoyed success for a third year running as they finished first in average points in the Beat the Street competition.

The event takes places over seven weeks in east London, with a total of 82 teams involved, and they managed to finish in second, third and fifth place as well, despite having some of the smallest teams in the event.

More than 35 members managed to walk, run or cycle 10, 000 miles during the competition.

After running the final hour of Beat the Street on Wednesday three members then immediately took part in the inaugural Chase the Moon race at the Olympic Park.

Frank Da Silva finished the 5k race in 27.23, while Mike Bristow finished the 10k in 46.24 and Rajesh Kerai completed the 10k in an hour and one second.

Viewtube Runners train every Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm and also hold a session on Sunday that is open to everyone from 9am.

They also organise a free, weekly timed 5k run.
