The experienced distance runner took part on the Wildest Peaks Trail Run in the Peak District, covering just under 16 miles.

It is a very popular event which has a long waiting list, offering the runners breathtaking views in near-perfect wintery conditions.

Adrian reported the views from Froggatt, Cunbar and Baslow Edges were incredible and, with an ascent of 1,765ft, the run was definitely a challenge.

Finishing in a great time of 3:18.04, Adrian took sixth place in his age category and was thrilled with his performance.

Clare Teesdale competed in the Oundle 10k, a two-lap undulating road route starting in Oundle and taking in the picturesque villages of Cotterstock and Glaphorn in the Northamptonshire countryside. The race is used as an early season fundraiser for Oundle Primary school.

Clare had a good run as she continues to progress, crossing the finish line in a time of 1:04.54 which she was very pleased with.

Boston Community Runners offer track sessions on a Tuesday evening at the Princess Royal Sports Arena (7pm).

On Thursdays they host a social group run with varying distances from Rosebery Avenue’s Peter Paine centre at 7pm.
