It was a case of short and sweet last week for most runners, with only the one Quaker exceeding 5K.
That honour fell to Dave Thompson who completed the Silverdale Circuit in the Lake District, covering the 23 mile route near Morecambe Bay in 3 hours 58 minutes.
For the night owls amongst us, midweek saw a 5K trail race at Tees Barrage. First home around the headtorch-lit route was Richard Hughes in 22:06, followed by Gary Read (22:14), Phil Rutter (23:01), Ty Hankinson (23:32), Diane Vaughan (24:44), Rebecca Howard (26:19), Matt Jackson (26:23), James Simpson (27:31), Lewis Boshier (30:44), Michelle Boshier (30:45) and Emily Beaumont (33:30).

A somewhat fluorescent Michael King even finds time to wave to the camera at the South Park parkrun
