The third and final round of the Hatfield 5k Series saw wins for the men and women of Garden City Runners.

Daniel Pudner judged his race to perfection, slicing through the sharp end of the field to win in a PB of 16 minutes 16 seconds.

In the women’s race, Lizzie Parry beat off fierce competition to take the crown in 18:39.

The event was rounded off with the series presentation.

Among those GCRs receiving trophies were Martha Hall, who won the FV45 category, and Peter Harvey who was second MV50.

Richard Bloom from Herts Phoenix was second in the MV70.

The overall men’s winner was Jonathan Parr from Fairlands Valley Spartans while Lucy Waterlow of St Albans Striders won the women’s series.

Waterlow helped St Albans Striders take the women’s team prize and Ware Joggers won the men’s competition.

The GCR team of Hall, Zoe Stephens and Amber Leigh-Marvin were third.

Donations of shoes and clothing plus £900 were made to Kit Aid who supply running kit to developing nations.

A special presentation to mark the 10th anniversary of the series was made to GCR race director Richard Sidlin and his colleague Craig Stephenson for organising the races at Affinity Water.

Six GCRs tackled the Stevenage 10k on Sunday morning over a course that was downhill in the early going and uphill at the end.

Harvey was the first GCR over the line in 37:42, good enough for fourth out of 273 runners and first MV50.

Carol Reid was first FV55, who was surprised to win in a time of 58:31.

Steve Mowles, Hiran Fernando, Thomas Parmley and Alison Paterson all represented GCR with the latter recording a PB of 1:09:14.

Another race over the distance was the Pride 10K at Victoria Park, Tower Hamlets.

Organised by the London Frontrunners Running club, more than 600 runners gathered to start the 20th running of the event which raises funds for the Micro Rainbow International Foundation, a charity supporting LGBTI communities around the world.

The flat conditions on the three lap course makes for a fast course with definite PB potential.

Unfortunately the flare up of a recent injury meant Nikki Cowen had to hold back from going full throttle, finishing in 1:01:40.

Richard Darley crossed the line in 54:17 just a few seconds shy of his course PB from 2018.

The Round Norfolk Relay saw a squad of GCRs take on the popular event that starts and finishes in King's Lynn.

And they were able to finish 21st out of 56 teams, with their actual cumulative time of 25:02:34 only 35 seconds slower than their predicted time.

Juliet Vine was third lady on stage nine, only one second off the second-placed runner, and Dan Pudner was third man on stage 10.

A busy weekend of parkruns saw 101 from the club in action.

Chris Jones was first into the finish funnel at Stevenage in 17:49 while at Panshanger, Katherine Lees was second woman, with Rebecca Barden fifth, Katy Healy sixth and Felicity Wadley seventh.

Lauren Potter was third female at Thomas Mills in 23:57, and Jamie Rose was third overall at Hunstanton Promenade.

Lucy Iles was the sixth female finisher at the Thames Path Parkrun.

Chris Dungate was seventh at St Albans, the same position achieved by Philip Brooks at Kettering, while Chris Eland was 10th at Bath Skyline.
