Grange Farm & Dunmow Runners hosted the Stebbing 10 on Remembrance Sunday and saw Liz Davis of Springfield Striders break her own female course record.

Davis clocked 58.01 to surpass the old 59.07 mark, after more than 500 runners joined the congregation at the village war memorial for two minutes' silence.

South London Harriers' Kevin Quinn won the race in 51.41, ahead of Springfield's Mark Newton (53.52) and Braintree & District's Tim Woulfe (54.43).

Jackie Stretton (64.07) followed teammate Davis home for the women, with GFDR's Philippa Robinson (67.46) third to win the County Championship female series award.
