Garden City Runners made the most of the pleasant weather as they cracked on with their spring marathon events and training runs.

A group took part in Flitwick 10k, with PBs for two of them.

Amber-Leigh Marvin was the first female from the club, moving her fastest time over the distance to 45 minutes 50 seconds, while Clare Wildey Grover was second GCR lady, also in a PB of 49:21.

Sarah Durston's 50:57 meant the trio finished second in the ladies’ team competition, the same place achieved by the men's team of James Huish, Ian Harper and Peter Harvey.

Spencer White was one of 32,000 runners at the Manchester Marathon, his first time running it.

And he too found the conditions conducive to fast running, clocking a PB of 3:33:08.
