Garden City Runners enjoyed team and individual celebrations despite the heatwave.

The club won promotion back to Division One of the Scott’s Travel Midweek League after the fourth and final race at Harlow.

They finished second overall but the women and both vets teams did clinch first place.

Top individual honours for the season were won by Neil Hume, first male, and Martha Hall, first female.

The fourth race had Hume finishing fourth and Hall third while James Huish ran with a cracked rib.

Denys Baudry received multiple plaudits from club-mates after completing his 500th marathon at the Great Barrow Challenge, a series of 10 marathons in 10 days.

Baudry, who is in his 60s, ran a sub-four hour time and has competed across the globe, including this year Calgary, Canada.

He is also still waiting on official confirmation that he has set the French record for marathons completed.
