It was a busy weekend for Grange Farm & Dunmow Runners with some travelling great distances just to run a whole lot more.
Naomi Moss travelled to the bleak but beautiful North Yorkshire Moors for the Hardmoors-55 miler. The event took the runners from Guisborough to Helmsley, directly across the moors, and was held in typical weather.
However, she was able to finish seventh lady overall in a time of 11 hours 57 minutes.
Abi Rayner and Rich Hayes took on Beachy Head Marathon in similar wet weather, altering the course to include an extra 519 feet of climbing to an already hilly course.
Rayner finished in 4:46:58 while Hayes took 3:57:44. He then took on the challenge of Stort 30 on Sunday along with Arron Clark and Declan Evans.

Clark was fifth overall in 3:46:06 while Evans was ninth (3:59:03) and Hayes 17th (4:18:53).
Both Clark and Hayes were making their debut runs with the club.

Ashwin Shah meanwhile took on the virtual Phoenix Running Club event P24 with a twist.
The twist was the clocks going back so he had to stay awake for 25 hours, running a minimum of one mile on the hour every hour. He clocked up 27 miles in 4:00:14.
