Runners headed out of Woodhall Spa into the countryside to the back of Stixwould, round the edge of the village and back down Monument Road, entering Jubilee Park to a crowd-lined finish straight.

The heat and humidity made the runners choose the steadier option rather than chasing a hard running PB.

In a totally different atmosphere, Ian Satchwell was at Blenheim Palace to attempt to complete as many Sprint Triathlons as possible over the weekend, raising money for Bloodwise, the blood cancer charity.

Ian surpassed both his targets, managing to complete five full sprint triathlons and raising more than £350 for the charity.

The Runners train on Thursdays at 7pm from the Peter Paine centre at Rosebery Avenue and all abilities are welcome to come along to see what the club is all about.
