With very little to choose from last weekend, some Quakers resorted to heading further afield for races, although the most unique event was to be found on the track.

At the Great Langdale 10K in the Lake District, Katherine Hackett completed the course there in 41:02 along with Louise Trainor in 42:35.

At the Ulverston 10K race in Cumbria, Louise Trainor doubled up for the weekend finishing in 43:47 along with David Todd in 44:37.

On the coast at the Blyth Sands race, two completed the run along the beach from Blyth to Seaton Sluice and back again; Phil Clarke finishing in 41:30 and Michael Oliver in 43:14.

The usual trio were out on the hills, this time for the Frostbite 30 Mile event, a circular route from Pately Bridge which took in most of the Nidderdale Way. Dave Thompson and Annette Clarke completed the distance (which turned out to actually be 34 miles) in 6:39 with Charlie Bogg coming home in 7:27.

The weekend’s most unusual event saw Michael Joyeux gain redemption in the second of this year’s “Beer Mile” events, completing the alcohol fuelled run ahead of Phil Rutter and Anthony Corbett.

In the Saturday morning parkruns, Paul Dalton finished at South Park in 17:31, followed by Marc Ellis (17:55), Michael Joyeux (18:13), Brian Martin (20:10), Dale Chapman (21:15), Graham Park (21:16), David Mclachlan (21:37), Steve Mcallister (22:22), Peter Rowley (22:54), Richard Coulson (23:16), Gary Read (23:57), Danny Gordon (24:14), Paul Appleton (24:43), April Corbett (24:59), Julien Deckard (25:49), John Brant (25:51), Anthony Corbett (26:24), Phil Rutter (26:24), Glyn Casswell (26:45), Jeanette Appleton (26:50), Michael King (28:26), Lorraine Batts (33:55), Adrian Dent (35:18), Hazel Commane (35:54) and Ian Bond (40:01).

At Sedgefield, Paul Roberts finished in 21:50, along with Wendy Colling (24:59) and Jill Wallis (38:04) while Alan Prest did the Durham run in 31:12.

In Middlesbrough, Ty Hankinson completed the Stewart parkrun in 22:01 followed by Gill Colling (29:31) and Sally Singleton (29:32) while Stephen Moore ran at Albert Park in 20:01.
