Heather Foundling-Hawker won the individual Bronze Medal at the British 100k Championships in Perth, Scotland at the weekend.

The beautiful 2km lap course was beside the River Tay. Though a misty, freezing, foggy start in twilight it turned into a glorious day. The win means Heather has secured her place as part of the Great Britain 100km team at the world championships in Holland later this year. Well done Heather.

●Nick Bradley-Carter ran the Reading Half Marathon, finishing in 1:51:21 in 4,362nd place.

●On the same day, Stephen Boyes ran the Cotswold Marathon. He was delighted to have managed to run the three lap course, with one big hill on each lap, in 3 hours 39min and 34 seconds. The race was won in a time of 2:57:08.

●It was a busy weekend for the London Marathoners with most getting their longest runs in the bag. JoJo Davey and Sandra Thorpe did 20 miles along the Exeter canal and Nikki Campbell and Louise Saunders ran from Dawlish to Exeter and back, a total of 22 miles. Warren Oak and Judy and Steve Davey also ran 22. They went to South Petherton to take part in Crewkerne Running Club’s training run. The route is circular and relatively flat taking in many towns and villages. Support was great with cyclists on the route for the whole way and refreshments provided afterwards.
